With 9.5 lakh+ cases, Bengaluru pips Pune as India's Covid capital



BENGALURU: Bengaluru has pipped Pune to become India's Covid capital as a district with most number of infections - more than 9.5 lakh as of May 10 - in the country.


The IT capital always had most number of cases in Karnataka, but its precipitous climb to the top of the table came on the back of a massive surge in cases fueled by the pandemic's second wave.


As of May 10, Bengaluru Urban district had about 20,000 more cases than Pune. Comparatively, Bengaluru had 86,500 fewer cases than Pune as on April 30 and more than a lakh as on March 31, indicating the rapid growth in cases in the past 40 days.


With 1.9 lakh fresh infections reported in the first 10 days of this month, Bengaluru Urban district added more than 5.1 lakh cases since April 1. Pune added 3.9 lakh cases in the same period.


This means more than 54% of Bengaluru’s 9.5 lakh cases have been added in 40 days. Bengaluru’s daily case average for the said period is 12,901, while in the past 10 days, it stands at 19,451. No other district in India has added as many cases in the said period. While the Karnataka go nment has conceded it underestimated impact of the second wave, the case burden on Bengaluru is unmanageably huge.


Eight states have more than 10 lakh cases: Maharashtra (51.4 lakh), Karnataka (19.7 lakh), Ker (19.3 lakh), Tamil Nadu (14 lakh), Uttar Pradesh (15.2 lakh), West Bengal (10.1 lakh), Andhra Pradesh (13.2 lakh) and Delhi (13.3 lakh).

Dont forget we have a worthless go nment in Karnataka. The CM when the Covid cases were touching 10,000 a day said, we will bring curbs after the bye ions are over. By the time the bye ions got over it went out of control

Nikhil M

Congratulations CM for making this a reality. None of us thought this would happen. The way how some strict rules were made last year, it helped a lot, but this time being casual and not taking actions at time has caused this.

Just saw a video of dead bodies floating in Ganga river,most sad and scary video I have ever seen,bloated rotten bodies mostly eaten by dogs.



Mithilesh Kumar

Situation is very rming and precarious. There is need for the state Govt to wake up and take measures to check the growing infection. It is surprising why center is kee quiet in case of such rming condition in the state.



Deviprasad Nayak

Modi is responsible for this crisis,he hate Bengaluru.State Govt started vaccination last month but Modi denied vaccine and Oxygen and killed thousands of people in bengaluru




BJP is disgusting

班加罗尔是印度最腐 败的城市。现任政府仍然忙着通过各种各样的形式来压榨人民,而且没有建氧气厂的计划,也没有疫苗截止计划
