NEW DELHI: Covid-19 cases in India continue to fall steadily but so massive has been the spread of infections in the second wave that May, in the first 21 days, has already become the deadliest month of the pandemic in the country.
Cases reported so far in May crossed 70 lakh on Friday, going past the previous record of 69.4 lakh set last month. In just 21days, May has recorded over 71.3 lakh cases, accounting for over 27% of all infections detected since the begng of the pandemic last year.
The data on deaths in May is even grimmer. So far, 83,135 fatalities have been reported this month, way higher than the previous highest monthly death toll of 48,768.
On average, nearly 4,000 fatalities (3,959) have been reported on each day of May so far.
India continues to record more than 2.5 lakh daily cases. On Friday, the count was 2,57,299, as per TOI’s Covid database. While cases have declined by around 35% from the peak, deaths are still high.
On Friday, however, the death toll dropped below 3,500 for the first time since May 3. India recorded 3,478, down from 3,968 reported on the previous day.
Bhakts were calling godi as world saviour. Now he is telling doctors nation n has faith on them. Feku give us the vaccines first.
Official registered count is 1 Lakh. It might be 5 Lakhs in actual case.
All numbers are fake.
May'21 proved to be the deadliest month as far as Covid-19 is concerned. Hope situation will improve now onwards.
Feku has bite the dust now...
I doubt if they are true figures
Feku has blood on his hands. He's responsible for the deaths of innocents. He's the deadliest of all. Since his second term began in 2019 the nation has not breathed easy. Panauti hai bhai panauti.
Kick Feku & Taklu out of India Politics
Actual Nos may be much higher than the published...
Virus this time liked the tropical heat.

Lets not lose hope. Vaccinations are now getting distributed to 18 . Cases are reducing. Fatalaties is also getting lesser than before. We will win this battle against the invisible enemy.
Test less, report less.
In this wave, even young people are dying, so at least all 18 years should be given vaccine as soon as possible !!
Only way to fight this virus is by mass vaccination !! So vaccine availability needs to be increased pan India !!
INDIA is a land of heroes and will overcome this challenge because no STORMS and DARKNESS are permanent,we will surely defeat this CHINESE BIO-WEAPON VIRUS.
And, these numbers do not contain hundreds and thousands of cases and deaths that happened in villages which were neither tested nor confirmed as Covid deaths !!
May hasn't ended yet. Still ten days to go!
still some people don't follow covind guidelines..
