COVID cases rise again: These are the most hit states in India
There’s been a continuous rise in the number of COVID cases across various states in India. While the numbers are rising, there are certain states which are hit more than others.
On Sunday, the Union Health Ministry said that the six states of Punjab, Karnataka, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Maharashtra have reported a high number of new single-day COVID-19 cases.
The situation is severe in Punjab, Karnataka, Gujarat, and Tamil Nadu while COVID cases in Kerala and Maharastra have become worse in the past few days.
According to the Ministry, just in the last 24 hours, these six states have collectively accounted for almost 85 percent of the 18,711 fresh cases.
Their statement read, “Maharashtra continues to report the highest daily new cases at 10,187, followed by Kerala with 2,791 while Punjab reported 1,159 new cases.”
Currently, the ministry is keeping track of the rising number of infection with the help of respective states and union territories and are deploying high-level teams to places where there’s been a higher caseload of active cases to help unburden the states.
Many states have been witnessing an upsurge in the number of fresh COVID-19 cases for nearly a month now. Over 18,000 new cases were reported just two days ago which is an increase of 1,873.
After slowing, this gradual yet steady rise in daily new cases of COVID infections is quite worrisome which has led to many cities imposing night curfew to curb the spread. Punjab and Maharastra have imposed a night curfew just last week.
Many cities have asked the people to follow the rules put in place, otherwise, they will have to impose a curfew. But the blatant disregard of COVID precautions continues on which has resulted in an increased number of infections. The last time India reported more than 18,000 single-day cases was in the last few weeks of January.
