Amazing : New Coronavirus cases in India Declining
Coronavirus cases in India: India, the fourth coronavirus worst hit country has shown a gleam of hope as the total number of reported new cases have shown a decline in the past three days. This comes at a time when India entered second phase of Unlocking.
- On Sunday, 28th June around 19.9k cases were reported
- On Monday 29th June, 19.4k cases were reported,
- The number of cases reported in the last twenty-four hours is 18.6k.
The total number of reported cases in the country stands at 5,85,493. The recovery rate of the country has also improved to 59.43%. 507 deaths due to Coronavirus were reported yesterday, which takes the total death count to 17,400. Number of Coronavirus samples tested yesterday were 2,17,931. Active cases in the country is at 2,20,114. Around 3,47,978 patients have recovered so far, as per the Health Ministry’s data.
The declining of the cases trend has been noticed in the country. However, this does not mean that we have reached our peak and the number of cases is declining steadily. With the new method of testing, guessing the country’s peak time is not easy. Many experts are of the belief that the peak of the country will depend on the daily decline of the number of deaths, and not reported cases. The increased testing rate in the country has been responsible for the high surge seen in the cases, and hence the number of reported cases is not a reliable tool for setting an approximate peak in the country.
The rural areas have reported a smaller number of cases, and big cities like Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai account for the lions share of the total reported number of coronavirus cases in the country.
President of Public Health Foundation of India Prof. K Srinath Reddy expressed his views regarding the peak of Coronavirus cases in India, and said that it can only be assumed that India has crossed its peak when the number of daily deaths decline for ten days in a row. Instead of looking it as one big epidemic in the country, Prof. K Srinath Reddy said that there are little epidemics all over the country, moving at a different pace.
