The number of deaths reached 8,102, after an increase of 8.5% in the last two days. This figure had risen by 7.8% over the past 48 hours.
The number of deaths in India has almost doubled in the past 17 days. The number of infections today is twice as high as sixteen days ago and, given the growth rate of that period, it can reach 300,000 in two days.
The continuing increase in the number of cases is a major challenge for India’s limited medical capacity and overstretched healthcare system.
Despite a much slower doubling of cases than in the previous epidemic, new infections and deaths are now rising faster in India than in most other severely affected countries. Of the countries with more than 4,000 deaths, India recorded the second highest rate of increase in confirmed cases and deaths last week.
Maharashtra killed 3,438 people, the highest number in the country to date by Kovid-19, followed by Gujarat (1,347), Delhi (984), West Bengal (432) and Madhya Pradesh (427). These five states are currently responsible for 82% of all covidemia-related deaths in India. In the past seven days Hariana, Delhi and Tamil Nadu have seen the highest number of deaths.
The mortality rate in this case is very different. Gujarat has the highest mortality rate (6.3 percent), followed by West Bengal, where 4.6 percent of people who tested positive for the coronavirus died. It is followed by Madhya Pradesh with 4.2%. The mortality rate in India is 2.8%. Of all the states where deaths occurred, the lowest percentages were in Tripura (0.1 percent), Assam (0.1 percent) and Odisha (0.3 percent).
It should be noted that the quality of data on cases and deaths varies between countries and regions, due to factors such as different testing standards and protocols for recording deaths related to covide.
Maharashtra treats 46,086 patients, the highest number in the country, followed by Delhi with 19,581 active cases and Tamil Nadu with 17,182 patients. Gujarat ranks fourth with 5,439 active cases and West Bengal fifth with 5,117 active cases. Of the 137,448 active cases in India on Thursday morning, 68% were in the five largest states and 80% in the ten largest states. Active cases exclude death and resettlement from the list of confirmed cases.
Currently 141,029 patients (49%) have been released in India. In India there are now more patients who have recovered than active cases.
Of the ten Allied states and territories with the most active cases, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir and Tamil Nadu recorded the highest percentage increase in the last seven days.
For the second consecutive day, more new cases were reported in Chennai than in Mumbai within 48 hours. Taneh, Ahmedabad and Puna are the next in the list of districts with the highest increase in confirmed cases in the last two days. These five districts account for 46% of new cases in this period, according to data collected last night by howindialives.com. Other areas that have seen an increase in the last two days are Kanchepuram in Tamil Nadu, Gurugram in Haryan and Hyderabad in Telangan.

Chennai (269) in Tamil Nadu, Indore (160) in Madhya Pradesh, Jalgaon (120) in Maharashtra, Jaipur (119) in Rajasthan and Aurangabad (118) in Maharashtra are the other areas with the highest toll. The ten largest districts are responsible for 69 percent of all deaths in the country. Restrictive data for Delhi are not available and are therefore not included in this list.
The number of coronavirus infections is likely to continue to increase in the coming days as the number of tests in India continues to increase. According to the Indian Medical Research Council, more than 5.21 million samples have so far been tested, 151,808 of which in the last 24 hours.
Meanwhile, the number of coronavirus cases worldwide has exceeded 7.3 million, more than 410,000 people have died and the number of recoveries has exceeded 3.4 million (47%).
