In world, India ranks 3rd in total number of Coronavirus cases reported till date.

However, in terms of active cases, Maharashtra would have been the 5th most affected country in terms of active cases, that is just above Peru and below Russia.
Maharashtra is densely packed, and is very flood prone, especially during the monsoon season. All of these things combined, the state is a red area for virus breeding, and its spread. Its vulnerability is on an all-time high in the country.
Mumbai accounts for over 15% of Maharashtra’s case load. The city reported 1174 cases yesterday. the total cases in Mumbai is now at 93,894. The one lakh mark in the city is not far away, and with the current growth rate, it wont take more than a week to cross it. The number of active cases is at 22,939 in the city.

India, on June 4th breached the one lakh case mark, and just a month later we have crossed the 9 lakh cases mark, and the total number of cases in India now stands at 9.06 lakh.
With over 28,498 cases registered yesterday, the climbing values are showing no sign of relief, and at this rate the situation of the country will be catastrophic by the end of this year.
India’s active cases have crossed the 3-lakh mark. The number of active cases is steadily increasing as the everyday a record surge is being witnessed in the country. Earlier there was a significant difference between the number of active cases, and the number of recovered cases, but ever since a spike in the number of cases has been witnessed, the number of active cases is steadily on the rise. If things do not settle down soon, India’s number of active cases might surpass the number of recovered patients. In case this were to happen, the healthcare and medical department will be heavily overburdened and the whole system will collapse.
People needs to understand the gravity of the situation and follow the government issued guidelines to protect themselves and others of the coronavirus.
