India’s population has surpassed the past 20 million, supplemented by 357,229 new cases in the last 24 hours, while the death toll rises to 3,449 for a total of 222,408.
India on Tuesday confirmed more than 20 million coronavirus cases across the state, although it says the number is much higher.
The dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases has recently left the medical system in the country, hospitals are running out of air and almost all hospital beds are occupied.
The country has seen the deaths of people outside overcrowded hospitals and funeral parlors shining at night.
Here are some recent updates:
Ahead of the ‘terrible’ weeks, an expert warned
Dr Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University’s School of Public Health in the United States, said he was concerned that India’s affiliated manufacturers believe things would change in the next few days.
“I’ve been … trying to tell them, ‘If all goes well, things will get worse in the next few weeks. And it could be very long,’ ‘he said.
Jha said he should look at the “old-fashioned” health measures of the state: direct closure, excessive testing, wearing masks all over the face and avoiding conventions. “That’s what’s going to disrupt the back of this surgery,” he said.
India’s total number of COVID-19 infections exceeds 20 million
The number of coronavirus infections in India exceeded 20 million, exacerbated by 357,229 new cases in the last 24 hours, while 3,449 deaths and 222,408 deaths, Health Ministry data showed.
India will be the second country in the world, after the United States, to take a more serious step. It took South Asia over four months to add 10 million cases, compared to more than 10 months out of the first 10 million.
India’s virus crisis is ‘catastrophic earthquake’
Doctors at New Dehli hospitals say their infrastructure is about to collapse amid a growing number of coronaviruses in India and seek help from the West and other countries.
The beds are full and the oxygen level has dropped dramatically in place, resulting in many deaths. Sometimes the only way a new patient can receive an ICU bed is if the deceased has died.
The condition does not appear to indicate a decrease, meaning that hospital staff are also on the verge of exhaustion.
The doctor likened the problem to a “catastrophic event” and said a similar response to the quake would be needed.
