This Year, India Has Seen the Highest Daily Rise In COVID-19 Infections
Published On:March 15, 2021
On Sunday, India announced the year's largest daily rise in COVID-19 cases, with 25,320 new infections, a day before Maharashtra, the epicentre of the renewed surge, was placed under lockdown.
According to federal health info, the count was the largest since Dec. 16. With 11.36 million cases, India is the world's third-most affected country, behind only the United States and Brazil. COVID-19 deaths in India increased by 161 to 158,607 in the last 24 hours, according to data released on Sunday, compared to an average of about 100 since early February.
For the first time since nationwide curbs were lifted in June, Nagpur district in Maharashtra will close on Monday. With 2.3 million cases, the state had the largest number of infections. Infections have been steadily increasing in New Delhi for the past two weeks, leading health officials to warn residents against slackening hygiene measures.
Even though a national vaccination campaign is underway, India's caseload has been steadily declining since late September. However, increased social gatherings and travel have caused a spike since early February. By August, the federal government hopes to have vaccinated a quarter of the country's 1.3 billion inhabitants.
