Covid: Growth in cases slows but death rate crosses 1%
NEW DELHI: India reported more than 27,000 deaths and over 27.4 lakh new cases in the week ended Sunday, its highest weekly Covid numbers till date, even as the growth of cases in this period, at 5%, was the lowest during the second wave, reports Amit Bhattacharya.
Deaths grew at a faster pace of nearly 15%, with the daily case fatality rate crossing 1% for the first time in the second wave in the last three days. The weekly toll crossed 25,000 for the first time as the country recorded 27,243 deaths during May 3-9, up from 23,781 reported in the previous week.
The growth in weekly cases slowed considerably, indicating that perhaps the second wave had reached, or was nearing, its peak.
India recorded 27,44,545 new cases in the week, a rise of 5% from last week's count of 26.13 lakh. By contrast, cases had grown by 16% last week (April 26-May 2) and by 47% in the week before.
On Sunday, daily cases dropped below 4 lakh for the first time in five days as 3,66,902 fresh infections were detected in the country. So far, the highest daily case count has been 4,14,554 reported on Thursday (May 6). Since then, the daily numbers have declined on each successive day. Fatalities from the virus too dipped on Sunday to 3,751 after remaining over 4,000 in the past two days. Significantly, the CFR has remained just over 1% for the past three days. CFR is the percentage of patients who have succumbed to the virus out of the total number testing positive.
When the whole world was busy in hel India against Covid. Modi and his IT cell were busy in removing tweets against Modi incompetency.Such a loser.
The biggest threat to Hindus is not Pakistan but the stupidity of Feku and his chamchas with all the demonetization, lockdown, and poor handling of the economy and the pandemic.
It is futile to draw conclusions from Indian data because it is riddled with fudging, manipulation, errors, inconsistencies and incoherence galore.
The actual death rate will be clear after two weeks of infetion; obviously the second wave is near its peak and will be coming down soon for which Modi will again be credited although he remained a silent spectator throughout like emperor Nero
When we talk of daily new cases, we should be talking of how many tests done first. Else such statistics are of no relevance. As regards to death rate even WHO is of perception that deaths in India are being hugely under reported.
Testing has been drastically reduced in BJP ruled states to lower the numbers. In rural India people are suffering from Covid but no body is there to help them. This is the BJP way of fighting Corona.
WE SHOULD THINK IT EARLIER WHEN OUR POLITICIANS DOING RALLY AND STRETEGY FOR ELECTIONS
It's exactly like Tonald Drump once famously said : "If we didn't do any testing, we would have very few cases. When you test, you have a case." Unfortunately, we don't know, and might never know, what the true death toll really is. However, it is safe to say that the actual number of deaths is much, much higher than the reported number, and Feku has blood of many lakhs of people on his hands.
Blaming Mughals for killing hindus, But I think This man killed more hindus than any other ruler of India.
BBC published an article proving that the Kumbh Mela participants turned out to be the super spreaders in India for the 2nd wave. Will the BJP-RSS government take action on these super spreaders under Disaster management act?
Death Rate is already crossed 10% (Percentage) in India... But...Why this failed government and failed system of India misguiding and misleading the people by Reporting and Publishing a Fake-Frivolous numbers of Covid Death in India..Daily about 40000 (Fourty Thousands) people are dying from the Corona in India..
All the governments should step in to ensure supply and rationalize cost of the vaccines.
Hopefully it will continue to slow down and so is the death rate and we will get more and more to vaccines available
Yesterday evening i went out for some work and came across so many ppl without their masks on..some were wearing below their nose.. some were just hanging around their ears..forming group of 10 -15 sitting on parked scooters and giggling away in glory without their mask.
Don't worry corona won't last long. UP elections are coming so authorities will fudge data
We need a national lockdown.
You can't trust politician words on medical related issues. Please start listening to experts and scientist instead. Get Vaccine at your earliest. These numbers game doesnot matter now as damage is already done.
Reality is the actual count for Cases & deaths are 4-5 times higher, which every government is hiding.
The second wave of Covid-19 pandemic have already peaked and now going down surely, let's see how quickly it happens.
If mass vaccinations are not achieved before the third wave, even God will not be able to help us.
