Karnataka COVID Statistics
Karnataka is reeling from a 6 times increase in ACTIVE COVID Cases in the last 3 weeks from 7k+ to 44k+ cases. Over 1200 deaths were recorded during this period which is a 6 times increase in the last 3 weeks.
Karnataka’s success in managing COVID without a lockdown can be a big turning point in the battle ahead. If Karnataka is successful, India is likely to be back to normal quickly.
