India leaves US and Brazil behind in 7-day average of daily new coronavirus cases

Corona Havoc

With 65,000 new cases in the past 24 hours, coronavirus spread in India seems to be accelerating. The country’s death toll has surged to 53014. India is now the third most affected country by total cases and fourth by death toll.

The death rate, however, has been constantly decreasing after peaking for the last time on June 16. On June 16, the death rate was 5.98 per cent which means among all those who got infected with the virus, 5.98 per cent people were dying. This has now come down to just 2.54 per cent.

All over the world, there are now more than 64.74 lakh active cases. There are currently 62,043 cases that are serious or critical.

Union Home Miniter Amit Shah has been admitted to Delhi’s AIIMS for post-coronavirus care after he complained of fatigue and body ache. Meanwhile, Jharkhand Health Minister Banna Gupta and Madhya Pradesh Higher Education Minister Mohan Yadav have also tested positive for Covid-19.

Five most affected states by a total tally of cases at present are Maharashtra (615,477), Tamil Nadu (349,654), Andhra Pradesh (300,000), Karnataka (240,948), and Uttar Pradesh (162,434). In Uttarakhand, coronavirus tally has risen to 12,961, with 497 more people testing positive on Tuesday.
