Coronavirus Covid-19 Tracker India News Live Updates: Despite four lockdowns in India, the number of corona patients is steadily increasing. A record of 9971 new cases was reported again in the country on Sunday. With this, the total number of cases in India has reached 2 lakh 46 thousand 628. In the last day, 287 people have lost their lives, bringing the death toll to 6929. Of these, more than three thousand deaths have taken place in the last 15 days only.
Of the total deaths in the country in the last 15 days, 80 percent have lost their lives in only 26 districts. At the same time, Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Thane, Pune, and Chennai are some such districts where over 100 deaths have been reported each in the last two weeks. Combining all these districts, 1964 people died here in 15 days. This is half of the total deaths in these districts – 4055.
However, the death rate from corona in India is still quite low – 2.8 percent. This means that out of every 100 infected, a maximum of 3 people is dead here. Globally, this rate is up to 5.8 percent. In the US, this rate is 5.7 percent. The rate is 5.5 percent in Brazil and 1.2 percent in Russia.
The surprising thing is that till May 22, in 90 districts where there was not a single case of death, now at least one person has died due to corona. Most of these districts are in Uttar Pradesh (18) and Bihar (13), where migrant laborers have returned in large numbers in the recent past.
