Sept. 4, 2020, 10:58 a.m.

New Delhi: Despite a lengthy lockdown which was intended to curb the COVID-19 virus, the coronavirus pandemic is getting more serious with each passing day.

The number of coronavirus infections is rising at an alarming rate in India with thousands falling victim to the COVID-19 virus every day.

The situation has become so dangerous that the number of coronavirus patients is rising by over 1,00,000 every two days as daily spikes of over 50,000 COVID-19 infections are coming to light for more than a month now.

Over the last few days, the coronavirus pandemic has gathered even more pace as the number of COVID-19 cases is rising by almost 80,000 daily.

The daily rise in fresh coronavirus cases is setting new records every day as the COVID-19 virus continues to play havoc.

As Unlock 3 unfolds, the coronavirus pandemic is assuming even more alarming proportions with the number of COVID-19 infections rising by leaps and bounds.

In terms of the daily rise in the number of COVID-19 cases is concerned, India has now surpassed even the United States, which has been the worst affected by the coronavirus pandemic among the major countries.

The coronavirus pandemic in India currently seems to be at its worst, as the country’s trajectory of daily cases continued to be the highest-ever recorded globally since the start of the health crisis in December 2019.

With 83,341 fresh coronavirus infections in 24 hours, India’s tally mounted to 39,36,747 on Friday, while the death toll climbed to 68,472 with 1,096 more fatalities, said the Health Ministry.

Out of total confirmed cases, 8,31,124 are the active cases, while a total of 30,37,151 have recovered from the virus so far. With 66,659 recoveries in a day, the recovery rate has increased to 77.15 per cent.

The number of patients recovering is on a steady rise over the past several months. As the daily recoveries increase, India has registered more than 60,000 recoveries each day, eighth day in a row.

“Less than two per cent of the active cases are on ventilators; two per cent is in ICUs; and less than 3.5 per cent are on oxygen support. This is due to early detection, early hospitalisation and effective clinical management based on the Standard Treatment Protocol,” the Health Ministry said.

Maharashtra continues to be the worst-hit with a total of 8,43,844 cases and 25,586 deaths; followed by Andhra Pradesh with 4,65,730 cases and 4,200 deaths. Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, West Bengal, and Bihar come next.

According to the data from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), India conducted a record 11,69,765 tests in a single day on Thursday, taking the total number of samples tested so far to 4,66,79,145.

On the global front, India still remains the third worst hit nation with the Covid-19 pandemic while the US and Brazil lead the board with 6,149,265 and 4,041,638 total cases, respectively. India is a lakh cases short of crossing Brazil.
