COVID Cases in India Increased

Last year, the country passed the two-crore mark on May 4 and the three-crore mark on June 23. Aside from the 213 deaths in Kerala, one new death has been reported in Uttar Pradesh.

So far, the country has reported 5,21,965 deaths, including 1,47,827 in Maharashtra, 68,615 in Kerala, 40,057 in Karnataka, 38,025 in Tamil Nadu, 26,158 in Delhi, 23,500 in Uttar Pradesh, and 21,200 in West Bengal. 

The service underscored that comorbidities were answerable for over 70% of the passings. “Our figures are being reconciled with the Indian Council of Medical Research,” the ministry was found to mention on its website, along with adding that the state-by-state distribution of figures is still subject to verification as well as reconciliation.

A concerning increase has been observed in Delhi in the days following the repeal of the mask mandate and the full resumption of in-person classes in the city’s schools after a nearly two-year hiatus. In the most recent spike, the national capital reported 517 cases. The city had received 461 new patients the day before.
