India's Covid cases set to cross 3m, last million in just 16 days
NEW DELHI: The Covid-19 pandemic is set to reach another grim milestone, with India on the verge of becoming the third country in the world to record 3 million cases. The country’s caseload is projected to cross that mark on Saturday, after more than 68,000 fresh infections on Friday took the tally to just 30,000 short of 3 million.
India’s daily cases, at 68,682 on Friday, was the third highest till date, taking the total to 29,71,112, as per data collated from state go nments. For the fourth day running, deaths from the vir s remained over 950, with 958 fatalities taking the total toll to 55,858.
When it hits the 3 million mark on Saturday, Covid-19 cases in India will have risen from the 2 million mark in just 16 days — the fastest rise among the three countries, the US and Brazil being the other two, which have recorded that many cases.
The rise from 2 million to 3 million cases took 23 days in Brazil and 28 days in the US. Of the three countries, India took the most number of days to reach the 1 million mark (138 days). But since then, cases in India have risen the fastest. The country took 21 days to go from 1 million to 2 million cases, as compared with 43 days in the US and 27 days in Brazil.
However, India’s death toll remains far lower than the other two countries. At the 3 million mark, the death toll in the US was over 1.3 lakh while fatalities recorded in Brazil at the same stage were just over 1 lakh.
Meanwhile, active cases in India crossed 7 lakh on Friday, 15 days after going past the 6-lakh mark. By contrast, active cases had risen from 5 lakh to 6 lakh in just nine days. The slowdown in the rise of cases points to a much higher rate of increase in recoveries in recent days.
On Friday, at least four states registered their highest single-day spikes in infections —Bengal (3,245 new cases), Gujarat (1,204), Haryana (1,203) and Madhya Pradesh (1,147). In MP, state cabinet minister Gopal Bhargava, former leader of the Opposition in the assembly, tested positive for Covid. He is the sixth minister, apart from the CM, to be infected by the vir s.
For the second day in a row, Maharashtra added over 14,000 cases — 14,161, the second highest for a 24-hour period — taking the state’s Covid-19 cases past the 6.5 lakh mark.

Stop counting, the tally will reach 29 crores in December. Death toll shown is just tip of Iceberg.
See, even if we test mamum number, if the negative tested person come into contact with a positive patient then he will become positive. So till we have vaccine there is no choice
There is no option for any country including US, but to go through the pandemic without any lock down.
By end of next month Feku will beat Bolsanaro and by year end Trump will bite the dust - Feku hai toh ye Covid ke Acche Din mumkin hai
Finally it's now confirmed that ' Nste Trump' infected the whole world - india is now just 5 lac cases behind Brazil a - and Trump , Bolsanaro and Modi are all the typical wingers who are clueless
Modi and his babus have shown the world how corona should not be managed.
It's all because of idiot Modi gt which didn't ban international flights on time
Corona has given a reson for feku to hide his failure.
One million in 16 days. What an achievement.
Feku will still say "there is no community transmission" and stupid public will believe that also.
A fortnight later pi Brazil, India will be just next to Uncle Don.
The next mark of 4m will reach in 6 days.
according in the world of the bhakts and the it cells everything is going well, infact the most important thing at the moment is the cancellation of a tender from by the railways
Modi ji bole ot is all nehru fault . Why did he allowed population increased to 1.3 b
Several countries managed to control the spread of Covid-19 but Indian go nment miserably failed to do so.
Another Milestone achieved by McModi.....
Even pakistan has fared better than india
next million in 12 days that also after fudging data.
After the mandir bhoom pujan, Modi has left Corona to Ram Bharose...
But how is this possible? Modi has said 'there is no community transmission of Covid in India'. And yet the infected cases is so high! Is this vir s not listening to Modi?
If Nehru was PM the infections would have crossed 300 million - thanks to Modi it's just 3 million - BJPee Logic
Another master stroke by FEKUJI.
Credit goes to Modiji
