I have been conducting Data Analytics Studies on the Coronavirus Pandemic for 199 days and have written 225 research-based blog posts on COVID-19 in these 199 days.
The reason I’ve not posted for 10 days is because I have been busy trying to complete my 11th book, which I’m hoping will be my best nonfiction book yet. Because of this same reason, I will be very sporadic with posts over the next 45-60 days.
India has become the second country (after USA) to cross 60 lac (6 million) Covid19 cases. With 60,50,875 cases, about 1 out of every 229 people in the country have tested positive for the disease at some time or the other.
India is now just 28-30 days away from crossing the USA to become the country with the most cases.
It took 169 days for India to cross the first 10 lac cases, 22 days to cross 20 lac, 16 days to cross 30 lac, 13 days to cross 40 lac,11 days to cross 50 lac, and now 12 days to cross 60 lac cases.
In the last 14 days, India reported an average of 88,485 cases per day. USA has added an average of 41,452 cases per day during these 14 days, which means that India is adding 47,033 more cases daily than USA.
In the past seven days, India recorded an average of 84,622 cases per day, or 29.8% of worldwide cases. India has 17.7% of the world’s population.
India’s highest daily tally was 978,859 cases on 16 September.
The National Capital Region (sometimes also referred to as Greater Delhi) has reported over 3.39 lac cases, of which more than 2.71 lac are from Delhi city (state) alone. The Greater Mumbai Metropolitan Region has reported more than 3.24 lac cases, of which more than 1.98 lac are from Mumbai city alone. Greater Bengaluru has reported over 2.31 lac cases. Greater Chennai has reported over 1.77 lac cases.
About 81.5% of cases in India have recovered, which is higher than the global recovery rate of 73.87%. India’s Fatality Rate (percentage of deaths) at 1.57% is much lower than the global Fatality Rate of 3.01%. India’s Fatality Rate was 2.83% on 1 June and the world’s was 5.95%. This probably means that doctors worldwide have learned how to treat patients better over the course of the last two months.
Do PM Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan —as well as CMs of states — have any strategy/ies to start reducing the daily new cases in India, as several other countries — including USA and Brazil — have done?
