Coronavirus outbreak: India surges past 1 million cases with record one-day spike
NEW DELHI: India has recorded more than 1 million Covid-19 cases and 25,000 deaths from the virus, crossing the twin milestones on Thursday amid a massive surge in the pandemic in recent days. The country added more than 36,000 new cases and 684 deaths during the day, both by far the highest in a single day.
India is the third country, after the US and Brazil, to log 1 million Covid-19 cases and the eighth to register over 25,000 deaths. India’s caseload has risen from 8 lakh to 10 lakh (1 million) in just six days, as compared with nine while moving from 6 lakh to 8 lakh and 11 for the previous 2 lakh cases. Likewise, the death toll has risen from 20,000 to 25,000 in just 10 days.
On Thursday, India recorded 36,139 fresh infections, over 3,600 more than the previous peak of 32,498 reported just a day earlier, as per data collated from state go nments. With this, India’s Covid-19 caseload rose to 10,04,806. Active cases rose by nearly 12,000 while around 23,000 patients were declared cured during the day.
Thursday also saw the highest single-day rise in the Covid-19 death toll, with 684 fatalities reported from across the country. The previous highest toll of 616 (discounting 2,003, mostly back-dated death reported on June 16) was recorded on Wednesday. While Maharashtra as usual led the count with 266 deaths — its second-highest 24-hour toll so far — Karnataka saw a huge spike in fatalities, adding 104 to its toll. It became the third state, after Maharashtra and Delhi, to register 100 deaths in a single day.
The day’s toll was also high in Tamil Nadu (69), Delhi (58), Andhra Pradesh (40), Uttar Pradesh (34), Bengal (23) and J&K (16).
In what would be another record, at least 11 states reported their highest single-day surge in cases, led by Maharashtra, which recorded a massive 8,641 new infections. The others were Tamil Nadu (4,549), Karnataka (4,169), Andhra Pradesh (2,593), Uttar Pradesh (2,083), Bengal (1,690), Bihar (also 1,690), Kerala (722), J&K (490), Jharkhand (381 since Wednesday night) and Chhattisgarh (218).
Any country that considers buying MLA’s and MP’s more important than buying much needed ventilators during such trying times is surely on the road to self destruction.
India is in very good position in this tally. Our health department will be very happy with this achievement. Moreover only country in the world to do that without having community transmission. Wow Modiji will feel proud of that.
Great work done by Modiji in such a short time india developed so many PPE
kits,masks ,eye gear that now india is exporting it .Now people have to
follow the rules laid down by Modiji.We are proud of Modiji who works for countries progress rahter than some who works for their family .our votes
for you and BJP will get 423 votes in 2024.
Well done. Mr Feku 56. Another milestone achieved under your leadership. We are proud of you. You really give this country a lot. Unemployment, sectarianism, co ption, hatred towards minorities, brawls with neighbors, weak economy and what not.
Its all the fault of Nehru
Delhi is only state which has decreasing corona cases.
Another milestone achieved. Thanks Mr Feku 56. Hopefully we will touch 5 Millions by September and 15 Million by November under your Chai Pati leadership.
1 million means 10lakh slowly we will get used to million billion and trillion..
Nearly 700 death a day and 36,000 cases daily is the biggest disaster in 5000 years history of India. This is nothing but a curse for electing a religious fanatic go nment with a fake PM with blood on his hands. Even today he declares he is doing a great job and there is no community transmission. Throw him out and free ourselves from this Feku curse or wait patiently for your own death.
HM is considering it as great achievement as they believe 1 million cases are indicative of good control.
1 million! Well done!
We are sl ve to the United States and God has bestow upon us an opportunity to follow our leader , the United States. " Tu jahan bhi jai, mera saya sath ho ga " India now stands at 2nd position. sanctions are waiting for us.
Only way corona comes under control in India is when it gets sick and tired of spreading or when a vaccine is invented.
we are waiting for the vaccine to be released to public on Aug 15 2020
Modi and team. Whree are you ? What are you doing ? Useless leadership only there to take credit.
The density of India and dynamics of this Virus are deadly combination. Too sad to see India's deaths are higher than China. It seems the health of Indians in general is poor. The people who have healthy organs are surviving.
There is nothing to worry, because Modi is still saying 'there is no community transmission of Covid 19 in India'. Just like he said we have nothing to worry about the Chinese grabbing our territory, because 'the Chinese never entered India'.
India is doomed now...... it can’t implement another lockdown, it will have a drastic impact on the economy. India is seeing a new high in cases and deaths every single day. And a high population density, high poverty rate etc. only boosts the spread of the virus. India can’t do much now. Maybe you can’t accept the fact, but you can’t deny it either.
Over night lockdown by Feku without any plans has been a major cause of the spread. First forcing the poor to sit down without any proper advice and then making them run/walk back to their home villages, has been a major cause of the spread all over the nation.
in 2016 we had 26 crore people under BPL in June 2020 we are having 80 crore under BPL.
1 million who cares? pm cares only about buying rebel MLAs..
