Daily Covid-19 cases touch 3.5L; 2,760 die in 24 hours – ET HealthWorld


There seems to be no respite for India as cases crossed 3 lakh for the fourth day in a row. For the fifth consecutive day, the country reported over 2,000 daily deaths. The case and death count for Saturday stood at 3.49 lakh and 2,760 in that order. The past 3 days alone saw over a million new cases and over 7,500 fresh deaths.

A global comparison shows that there is a huge gap in fresh cases reported from India which is the world’s worst-hit country at present and the USA which is the world’s second-worst in terms of daily cases. Compared to 3.46 lakh cases reported in India on Friday, USA had reported 63,206 fresh cases. Apart from these two no other country has reported more than 50,000 cases on Friday.

Even in its neighborhood, no country comes close to India. On Friday Pakistan reported 5,870 fresh cases while the numbers were 3629, 2449 and 969 for Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka respectively.
