India 12th nation to surpass China’s corona count. India is reportedly having increasing cases for a couple of days. Just five districts – three of them in Maharashtra – have reported nearly 57% of all new cases in the last two days.
There is a 10 percent increase in the number of coronavirus patients in India over the past two days. The count rose up to 85, 940. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) is really concerned about the number of cases.
This is roughly in line with the rate of increase in the previous 48 hours, when the reported case count rose to 78,003 on Thursday.
As far as the week is considered, there is a 28 percent hike in the number of cases. This is a comparatively slower than the rate of the previous five days.
After tapering last month, India’s coronavirus trajectory has picked up this month, with new infections rising faster than several Asian peers and deaths rising faster than in most other badly-hit countries.
