COVID-19 CASES TREND GOING UPWARDS IN INDIA, SAYS GOVT
The Centre on Tuesday said the second wave of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) has crossed the previous highest surge and the upward trend of the infections is a cause of concern.
Union health secretary Rajesh Bhushan pointed out that the trend in India’s Covid-19 cases trajectory in the second wave is “worrying”. “We have 89.51% people who have been cured, 1.25% deaths and 9.24% active cases. If we look at new cases, we will find that the previous highest surge has already been crossed and the trend is going upward. That is a cause for worry,” Bhushan said.
He, however, noted that with 41,69,609 Covid-19 doses given per day, India continues to administer one of highest doses globally.
