The number of deaths has risen to 11,903, an increase of 25 percent in the last two days. This figure is faster than the previous 48 hours, in which it had risen by 7%.
The death toll increased sharply following the Maharashtra government’s statement on 16 December. On 18 June the Commission decided to update its figures after 1 328 deaths at the beginning of the epidemic. Maharashtra is the worst state in India.
With this update, the number of deaths in India has almost doubled in the last two weeks. The number of infections today is twice as high as 18 days ago and given the growth rate in this period it can reach 400,000 DM in four days and 500,000 DM in nine days.
The continuing increase in the number of cases is a major challenge for India’s limited medical capacity and overstretched healthcare system.
Despite a much slower doubling of cases than in the previous epidemic, new infections and deaths are rising faster in India than in most other severely affected countries. Data reconciliation in Maharashtra brought more Belgian results in India and now ranks eighth in the world for this indicator. India also had the largest increase in confirmed cases among countries last week with more than 4,000 deaths.
Currently, 5,537 people have died in Maharashtra, followed by Delhi (1,837 people), which has overtaken Gujarat (1,533 people) on this list. In Tamil Nadu 528 people died and in West Bengal 495. These five states are currently responsible for 83% of all covidemia-related deaths in India. In the past seven days Hariana, Delhi and Tamil Nadu have seen the highest number of deaths.
The mortality rate in this case is very different. The mortality rate in Maharashtra had fallen from 3.7 percent to 4.9 percent, while in India it had fallen from 2.9 percent to 3.4 percent. Gujarat, which has a mortality rate of 6.2 percent, still has the lowest percentage. Of all the states where deaths occurred, the lowest rates were recorded in Tripura (0.1 percent), Ladaha (0.2 percent) and Assam (0.2 percent).
It should be noted that the quality of data on cases and deaths varies between countries and regions, due to factors such as different testing standards and protocols for recording deaths related to covide.
In Maharashtra, 50,057 patients are treated, most of them in the country, followed by Delhi with 26,351 active cases and Tamil Nadu with 20,709 cases. Gujarat ranks fourth with 5,962 active cases and West Bengal fifth with 5,386 cases. Of the 155,227 active cases in India (as of Wednesday morning), 70% were in the five largest states and 80% in the ten largest states. Active cases exclude death and resettlement from the list of confirmed cases.
Up to 186,935 patients (53%) have now been released in India.
Of the 10 Allied states and territories with the most active cases, Andhra Pradesh, Haryana and Delhi have seen the highest percentage rise in the last seven days.
The districts of Mumbai, Chennai, Taneh, Pune and Ahmedabad have seen the largest increase in confirmed cases in the last two days. These five districts account for 46% of new cases in this period, according to data collected last night by howindialives.com. Other areas where there has been a strong increase in the last two days are Gurughram in Haryan, Hyderabad in Telangan and Kanchepuram in Tamil Nadu.

Meanwhile, the number of coronavirus cases worldwide has exceeded 8.1 million, more than 440,000 people have died and the number of recoveries has exceeded 3.9 million (48%).
