It is nearly Fifty thousand cases of Covid-19 that came in 24 hours, as the government’s daily report said today. 49921 is the exact figure, the highest in a day to date. The previous highest was 49310, only four days back. It is to note, India is adding above 45000 cases every day for five days in a row. The last 5 days saw 2.42 lakh new cases in India, and 8.68 lakh since the beginning of this month. That means, 60.5 percent of the total cases came only in 27 days.
An increase in testing is cited to be one of the key reasons behind the daily spurt in case registration. Yesterday, the total numbers of testing, in India, counted 5, 15,472. It is a record to date. However, daily testing for the corona sample has crossed 4 lakh three days back. Earlier this month, India used to take up around 21 lakh samples per day, which have now gone past 5 lakh a day.
Recently, in a review meeting, the center has suggested the states that are not doing enough testing, to increase it.
