Coronavirus: India hits highest 1-day count of cases, fatalities | India News

India recorded its highest single-day peaks in Covid-19 deaths as well fresh cases on Wednesday even as the number of recovered patients breached the six-lakh mark. With a phenomenal surge in daily cases in the last fortnight, the country’s caseload as well as addition to active cases in the 15 days of July is close to the corresponding figures for the entire month of June.
Breaching the 32,000-mark for the first time, 32,498 fresh cases on Wednesday took the country’s caseload to 9,68,835. India also recorded its highest-daily casualties of 615 — discounting the 2003 backdated deaths that were reported on June 16 — taking the cumulative toll closer to the 25,000-mark at 24,860.
On the positive side, 6,11,973 people have recovered from the infection. In fact, the recoveries in the 15-day period of July were more than that in the entire month of June.
However, a surge in cases is a worrying signal. While the number of Covid cases in June stood at 4,00,413, in the first fortnight of July alone this number was close to the four-lakh mark at 3,83,361. The same trend was seen in the number of active cases. However, compared to nearly 12,000 deaths recorded in June, 7,468 casualties were recorded in the first 15 days of July, reflecting a drop in the case fatality rate.
At least seven states reported on Wednesday their highest single-day peak – Karnataka (3,176 fresh cases), Andhra Pradesh (2,431), Kerala (623), Gujarat (925), Goa (198), West Bengal (1589) and Rajasthan (866). Karnataka also became the fourth state in the country to record 3,000 or more cases in a day while Andhra Pradesh became the fifth state to register more than 2,000 cases in a day.
Bengal became the fifth state in the country, after Maharashtra, Delhi, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat, to record thousand or more deaths with 20 fresh casualties taking the state’s cumulative toll to 1000. Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh also saw the highest number of casualties in a day, recording 87 and 44 deaths, respectively, in the last 24 hours.
Tamil Nadu breached the 1.5 lakh-mark, even as the number of people discharged stood at 1,02,310. The state added 4,496 fresh cases on Wednesday, taking the case tally to 1,51,820. With 68 fresh deaths, the state’s toll reached 2,167.
Maharashtra continues to be the worst affected state, reporting 233 deaths on Wednesday, taking the state’s cumulative toll to 10,928. The state reported 7,975 fresh cases in the last 24 hours. The state has added one lakh Covid cases in the last fortnight alone. Wednesday’s addition of 7,975 fresh cases was the the state’s second-highest addition in a day.
Of the total cases, 1,00,917 lakh cases were added in the last 15 days alone. It had taken 28 days in June to add one lakh cases, underlining how Mumbai may have stabilised the curve for now. But a few other regions are witnessing a surge.
Other states that recorded high casualty figures on Wednesday were Delhi (41 deaths), UP (29), Gujarat (10), Telangana (11), Bengal (20), Bihar (14) and J&K (12).
