India is experiencing an unprecedented nightmare in the coronavirus outbreak. The highest number of daily cases ever seen worldwide is recorded in India. Meanwhile, according to the latest reports from the country, hospitals are running out of oxygen.
More than 314,000 cases detected in India, which is among the countries most affected by the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, have been recorded as the highest number of daily cases ever seen worldwide in the Covid-19 outbreak.
According to India’s Health Ministry, 2,104 people have died from Covid-19 in the past 24 hours, bringing the death toll to 184,657.
With 314,835 new cases in the past 24 hours, India surpassed the world’s largest number of daily cases in the United States on January 8, with a total of 15,924,806 cases in the country.
Maharashtra with 67,468 cases, Uttar Pradesh with 33,106, and Delhi with 24,638 were the regions and states with the highest daily case increase.
2,291,413 people are being treated in the country, where the number of people recovering from the virus has reached 13,454,880.
Experts have warned that the health system is at a “tipping point,” pointing out that hospital occupancy rates are at their highest level following rising cases across the country.
Health officials said hospitals in the capital, New Delhi, were lacking oxygen tanks, beds, and some important drugs to treat Covid-19, and called on the central government to provide emergency assistance to the province and address the shortcomings.
On the other hand, the need for oxygen for cases that are severely suffering from coronavirus has turned into a crisis. India’s capital, New Delhi, needs 700 tons of oxygen daily, the state minister has said.
New Delhi’s state minister, Arvind Kejriwal, said today that the city needs 700 tons of oxygen every day. On the other hand, PK Bhardwaj, General Manager of Saroj Hastnesi, said, “There is a shortage of oxygen. This situation has been going on for 5-6 days and the oxygen supplier cannot be contacted. At the moment we only have an hour’s oxygen,” he said.
The country with the highest number of cases recorded in the world on a daily basis
In India, where the first case of Covid-19 was recorded on January 30, 2020, the number of daily cases increased overtime to 97,859 on September 16, 2020, and has since gone downhill. The number of daily cases decreased steadily over the next 4.5 months to 8,587 on February 1st.
After the first wave, the case curve drew a hard spring upwards from February, creating a new and much larger wave than the first.
India has recorded the most cases in the world daily since April 2nd.
THE NUMBER OF VACCINES APPLIED EXCEEDED 132 MILLION
The country, which has a population of about 1.4 billion, is running a widespread vaccination campaign against the disease.
India’s Ministry of Health announced that the number of vaccines administered in the country has reached 132,330,644 doses.
According to the “Ourworldindata.org” website, which compiles Covid-19 vaccination data, India is “the 3rd most vaccinated country in the world”, behind the United States and China.
NEW TYPES OF HIGH INFECTIOUS PROPERTIES OF VIRUS ARE SPREADING
In India, one of the first countries to meet the new wave of outbreaks worldwide, the mutated and contagious strains of Covid-19 are estimated to have been instrumental in the recent increase in cases.
The three mutated species, which have emerged especially in South Africa, The UK, and Brazil, are seen by experts as a concern. These mutations of the virus were detected in 7 percent of the 11,000 virus samples genetically sequenced in India since December 30, 2020.
Punjab state officials said on March 24 that 81 percent of the 404 samples collected in the province on January 1-March 10, which were gene-sequenced, was the more contagious strain of Covid-19 that first appeared in the UK.
Health Minister Harsh Vardhan admitted on April 8th that a lack of measures to reduce mass mobility and social interaction had contributed to the increase in cases.
Vardhan noted that religious festivals are celebrated in the 11 states where cases are highest, election rallies are held, and people neglect distance rules on mass crops.
