India’s daily Covid cases double in 10 days to just shy of 2 lakh
NEW DELHI: India reported nearly 2 lakh fresh Covid-19 cases on Wednesday, with the daily case count almost doubling in 10 days amid an unprecedented surge in the pandemic.
A total of 1,99,620 new cases was recorded, just 380 short of the 2-lakh milestone, a mere 10 days after the single-day case tally had crossed 1 lakh, as per TOI’s data collated from state go nments.
The US, the only other country to log over 2 lakh cases in a day, had taken 21 days to hit the grim milestone after crossing the 1-lakh mark. Cases in the US hit 1 lakh on October 30 last year and crossed 2 lakh on November 20. The country went on to record a peak of 3,09,035 cases in a single day on January 8, as per the worldometers.info website.
Such has been the second-wave surge in India that daily cases have hit a new high on nine of the last 11 days — the only two exceptions being Mondays, when numbers usually drop sharply due to lower testing and staff shortages over the weekend.
Modi should have stepped up by postponing ions and Banning Kumbh. He failed big time in moment of crisis.
A failed PM of a radical country
Modi G new slogan. From ‘make in India’ to ‘die in India’
Can someone wake PM up to let him know about Corona and related deaths.
JUST WAIT FOR THE SCARRY PICTURE POST ELECTION & POST KUMBH MELA, CORONA SHALL BE TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL, HEALTH CARE SYSTEM WILL COLLAPSE, CENTRAL GOVERNMENT MAY IMPOSE FEW WEEKS LOCKDOWN, SEVERE ECONOMIC CRISIS SEEMS IMMENENT WITH MASSIVE JOB LOSSES.
Campaigns and huge gatherings are more important than life of millions of citizens, their livelihood and fate of a nation . We haven't learned anything from 2020.
ions could have been postponed.
Kumbha was a serious blunder and should have been cancelled considering the grave Covid threat!
Modi hain to Mumkin Hai.. very Soon india will cross 5 lakh cases in a day...
I have this ominous feeling that things are going back to 2020, and only for worse.
The Modi govt., hogged all credit for Infection rate coming down for no rhyme or reason, but is shifting the blame and not willing to take responsibility when things have gone haywire. Such is the overbearing attitude of this govt., which truly believes it is infallible.
This is what happens when power is con trated in one person who is uneducated and focused on himself.
This is just tip of the iceberg as India is hardly testing around 12 lakh samples a day and this too highly skewed across states. In terms of testing rates per million population, this is grossly insufficient as we are testing only around 1,86,000 people. In contrast, USA is testing 13 lakh per million population.
Kumbh Mela is a super spreader event going on with full go nment support....millions waiting to get infected bcoz of these bunch of fools and morons.
Modiji is Number SUPER SPREADER IN INDYA with Election rallies and Kumbhamela.
Soon infection may reach 5 lakhs per day . We as a good citizen should follow the guidelines framed by go nment. Ours is a huge thickly populated country and everything can't be provided by go nment.
How could the go nment allow Kumbh and risk lives? Go nment has terribly mismanaged this. God save the country.
With Modi as PM of India, I am sure he will take the case load to 2 million per day within a month!!!
India grossly underreported the corona caseload and deaths and hospitalisations in 2020 and now the true picture is coming out.
I bet that still this shameless, inept, and publicity craving govt will extensively publicise recovery rates to highlight its so-called excellent management of the disease. It truly believes that public are distilled idiots who can be easily swayed over
