I have been conducting Data Analytics Studies on the Coronavirus Pandemic for 112 days and have written 175 research-based blog posts on COVID-19 in these 112 days.
India is the fourth country in the world to cross 600,000 (6 lakh) COVID-19 cases.
It was the 11th country to cross 100,000 (1 lakh) cases, 7th to cross 200,000 cases, and also 4th to cross 300,000, 400,000 and 500,000 (5 lakh) cases.
It took 109 days for India to cross the first 100,000 (1 lakh) cases, 15 days to cross 200,000 cases, 10 days to cross 300,000 cases, 8 days to cross 400,000 cases, 6 days to cross 500,000 cases, and now only 5 days to cross 600,000 (6 lakh) cases.
In the last 6 days, India has accounted for 10.7% of total worldwide cases and 9.14% of total deaths.
The Greater Mumbai Metropolitan Region has reported over 107,000 Covid cases, of which 77,658 are from Mumbai city alone. The National Capital Region (sometimes also referred to as Greater Delhi) has reported over 104,000 cases, of which 89,802 are from Delhi city (state) alone. Greater Chennai has reported over 66,300 cases. In comparison, the entire state of West Bengal has reported only 19,170 cases, a figure that only Mamata Banerjee and her cronies believe.
About 59.6% of cases in India have recovered, which is higher than the global recovery rate of 54.9%. India’s Fatality Rate (percentage of deaths) at 2.95% is much lower than the global Fatality Rate of 4.84%.
India has conducted only 6,398 Tests per Million residents (TPM), which means just about 0.64% of its population has been tested. Even Pakistan has done 5,914 TPMs.
The three countries with more Covid-positive cases than India have done far more testing than India — Russia (136,036 TPMs) has ~21.3 times India’s testing rate; USA (103,322 TPMs) has ~16.1 times India’s testing rate of India; and Brazil (53,361 TPMs) has ~8.3 times India’s testing rate.
The Top 30 countries in number of cases (all have reported a minimum of 50,000 cases) have an average testing rate of 40,910 TPMs, which is ~6.4 times that of India.
Despite ramping up testing by 39.4% in the past 15 days compared to the previous 15 days, India still needs to ramp us testing even more to catch up with MOST of the rest of the world.
