More global records fall: Daily Covid cases hit 4 lakh, April count 69 lakh
NEW DELHI: Covid's cruellest month yet in India ended with another global record, as daily cases crossed an unprecedented 4 lakh on Friday, while a staggering 6.9 million (69 lakh) new infections were detected in the country during April, the highest tally for any month in any country so far.
The death toll from the pandemic in April stood at 48,768. This was not just the highest for any month so far in India but higher than the fatalities reported in the previous five months put together.
On Friday, the country recorded 4,02,351 fresh cases, as per TOI's data based on state go nment numbers, making India the world's first country to go past the grim milestone. The daily case count had crossed the 3-lakh mark just nine days ago on April 21, when India went past the US's record of the highest number of cases reported in a single day -- 3,07,516 on January 8 this year, as per worldometers.info.
A total of 69,36,034 new cases were reported in the country in April, higher than the numbers detected in the previous worst three months together. During those three months (August, September and October last year), a total of 64.9 lakh cases were reported. In fact, more cases were detected in April than in the previous six months put together.
Over a third of all cases (36%) and nearly a quarter (23%) of all deaths since the begng of the pandemic have come in this one month alone, which expns just why India's healthcare infrastructure was so overwhelmed in April.
At least we are leading the world in something. Make in India and Atmanirbhar is actually about vir s it appears now.
I wish vir s only infected fraud bhakts who still thinks their supreme leader is doing good job. These people are the worst animals
BECAUSE OF THE INCOMPETENCY OF OUR FEKU WE HAVE NOW BECOME A LAUGHING STOCK IN INTERNATIONAL MEDIA. HE HAD A CHANCE TO TURN AROUND THINGS HOWEVER HE DID NOT DO ANYTHING. WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE THOUSANDS OF DEATHS EVERYDAY ????
ONLY ONE MAN IS RESPONDIBLE FOR THIS TRAGEDY - SUPER SPREADER FEKUCHAND JUMALAWALE AS PER DOCTORS ASSOCIATION
This is a real tragedy. But, to que the old saying, 'As you sow, so you shall r'. The illiterate masses of our nation chose to an illiterate Prime Minister and worshiped him fanatically.
Feku should be charged with crime ag inst humanity.
Ghar Ghar Modi Ghar Ghar Corona.. Thank you Modi Ji.. Whole world is laughing at digital India. Every headline in the world media is about India's failure to tackle this vir s..

The daily death is estimated to be 'at least' 30,000 by Chicago University while our govt showing just 3000-4000. These numbers are shoking and I am not drunk. The govt is hiding facts too much. Govt should realize it is not about reputation, wrong data will only lead to wrong planning and more disaster.
salute to our idiot pm..
Jai Ho, we are now the world's number one beggars under uneducated Modiji. Congratulations on achieving the distinction of BUTCHER OF INDIA. Go hold more rallies and let people meet without covid protocols all over. May be you are trying to kill people to get the population down? Be honest to to India and the world and declare honest how many people died due to covid.
Right on cue, BJP leaders are talking about wng seats in polls. They are not talking about increasing deaths.
Like his stinking and flowing beard, Modi's blunders keep growing to place India in this terrible situation.
achche din are truly on us...one way ticket to paradise...go and enjoy.. take credit sir ..jokes apar.. Modi has ATED his responsibility..and now frantically finding Scape goats...56"chest..
another first for India ...lets clap hands for the illiterate fool..
Wow, in a matter of months we have become "beggars and losers of the world" from "world's' pharmacy".
Death tally is hugely underreported.
and my PM is invisible in these harrowing times.
Central Govt must compensate to each and every citizens, For creating a mess by Prime Moron, and no body knows, How long this will last, What is the peak for us, May be 1 million cases per day
The situation had turn to worse due to many factors the main one is conducting ions of all forms along with carelessness of public towards covid protocols!
Modi has ruined the reputation of India, now India is again famous as a poor third world country which is begging to the world for oxygen and medicines. Such a shameful situation for people who were aspiring to compete with China and USA.
