India added 1 million Covid cases, 13,000 deaths in 12 days
NEW DELHI: India has recorded more than 1 million Covid-19 infections in the first 12 days of September amid an unprecedented surge of the pandemic in the country. The country has also reported 13,082 deaths during this period, the highest toll from the virus recorded in any country so far this month.
With 95,249 fresh cases reported on Saturday, India’s case count so far in September is 10,65,796, as per data collated by TOI from state go nments. By contrast, India had recorded over 19.8 lakh cases in August, the highest by any country for any month. If current trends continue, India will have recorded more cases than the August tally by September 24.
The country’s death toll in September is also the world’s highest so far, with both the US and Brazil having recorded around 10,000 fatalities each this month. On Saturday, 1,115 deaths were reported in the country, the toll staying above 1,000 for the sixth straight day.
The day’s fresh cases dropped marginally from Friday’s record high of nearly 98,000, with many of the worst-hit states reporting a slight dip. However, nine states recorded their highest single-day jump in infections — Delhi (4,321 new cases), Chhattisgarh (3,964), Haryana (2,783), Madhya Pradesh (2,347), J&K (1,698), Rajasthan (1,669), Gujarat (1,365), Uttarakhand (1,115) and Goa (740).

clueless GOVT and Zahil Chaiwala budha are reasonable
BJP has destroyed both Health and wealth of Indians and India..
It seems that even God ain't helping India despite being bribed with a magnificent temple
Both ICMR chief and the Health Minister should take moral responsibility and quit gracefully.
Brilliant masterstroke by Modi. Modi Modi Modi Modi....
Now no lockdown, at 300 cases 21 days of strict lockdown. Are you really serious in fighting against Coronavirus?
This is just tip of the iceberg because India is hardly testing 38,000 per million population
Feku who cannot handle the economy, unemployment or pandemic in 2020 was blaming Nehru for not doing a good job in 1947 and Indira Gandhi for not doing a great job in 80's.
Hurray....soon number 1 and for the first time since independence we are benchmarking to the USA and not to Pakistan. Go India Go. You can do it!!!
Whenever there's situation as serious as this,. The chowkidar goes into hiding. When situation improves, comes the chest thumping moron taking all the credits. Iam sure even bhakts have started realising this now. Questions will be asked Mr. PM. You are not fit to govern this great nation. Please leave for betterment of our society.
Chaos seems be the scene everywhere these days with more and more opening of different departments. No one cares for any Masks, Social Distancing or other safety rules.
WRONG. India added at least 6 million cases in 12 days. 85% of infected people do not show any symptoms and therefore don't get testsd. 1 million is drawn from people who showed symptoms and therefore got tested.
We should support govt for its initiatives
I do not see the necessity for quarantining passengers arriving by international flights at Indian airports. The U S go nment has announced that no such requirement will be mandated for passengers arriving at any of the U S airports. Quarantining people arriving from other countries makes sense only when there is no community spread within the country.
Congratulations Moti ji! Not everyone can achieve this level of incompetency! It truly takes a stupid mind to mess things up so much! That's why bhakts believe in you because you can make India no. 1
Friends till vaccine is not available please take stern precautions... I lost 2 neighbours... they have never expected that they will die... but they did.
PM Mod likes to take bold decisions
1) Banning currency which led many people die standing in lines
2) Unplanned lockdown more the 100's of people died in agony by walking 1000's of kms
Modi has his hand filled with blood, you can fool the people but not god.
The entire country is open and several people are just hanging masks down their neck as they may be getting tired of wearing it. Restrict movement and wearing mask should be compulsory.
Modiji and BJP at least ensure India to become no 1 in COVID a great achievement. All those who voted for them in 2019 should be congratulated for voting such a Government.
Not unexpected . Under whimsical administration of Modi Government this was bound to happen .
Benjaminnagayakohima Snakehead Jamir
If you go by deaths per million population, India is number 61. All thanks to the good work of Modi.
Modi led govt failures
2) -23GDP worst among G20 nations
3) Worst Covid mismanagement
4) Chinese intrusion and grabbing of land
Shameer i k
Still ICMR/Goverment didnt confirm community spread, so we are safe !!!!
