Covid-19 cases growing fastest in India among worst-affected countries -Rukmini S and Nikhil Rampal
Despite government claims, coronavirus cases are growing fastest in India among the worst affected countries, and improvements in India have plateaued.
Chenai/ New Delhi: Most discussions on India’s Covid-19 outbreak centre on the high number of cases, now third in the world after the United States and Brazil. The messaging from the government has been that things are getting better. However, a broader look at the month’s data shows that cases are growing fastest in India among the worst affected countries, and improvements in India have plateaued.
Not only that, but India is gradually inching towards registering the highest number of daily new cases. Since last week, it has consistently added over 40,000 new cases every day, and on Monday, July 27, it was just 5,000 cases away from reporting the highest daily rise in cases in the world. India reported nearly 50,000 new cases, just behind the US, which added a little less than 55,000 cases on the day. Incidentally, Brazil at the third spot added less than half the number of cases as India.
