As of now, the cases in this week have risen by 64%, between Sunday and Friday evening. This increase is also slower as compared to the previous five days when the cases increased by 76%.
Even though the country’s trajectory is deaccelerating, there is a steep rise in cases in India as compared to other Asian countries such as Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, and Pakistan.
Doubling of the case count
In India, the case count has nearly doubled in the past eight days. It was also a slower rate from the previous weeks when the cases were increasing every four days. If we want to avoid patients in Indian hospitals anymore, then the trajectory must slow down further.
The death toll of COVID-19 in India is increasing at a fast pace in comparison to the case count. Last evening the deaths were 452. It has doubled in the past six days.
