According to a report from the University of John Hopkins on May 15, there were 3,787 new Coronavirus cases in India, which means the number of cases in this country has hit 85,784, higher than that in China (84,038 cases). At present, the country has ranked 11 in terms of the number of Sars-CoV-2 cases.

Stay Home Covid 19
India has kept ordering people to stay at home and maintain social distancing.

There has been an increase in the rate of new Sars-CoV-2 cases in India although its nearly 1.3B citizens are still ordered to stay at home. However, many Indians are now living in crowded residential areas, leading to infeasible social distancing.

It isn’t difficult to see more than 4 members in many middle-class families sharing an apartment and a bed in this country. The situation tends to go worse in the slums in Mumbai where about 7 people live in the only room and the whole citizens have to share one toilet.

Coronavirus India
The latest report figures out that India has surpassed China in Coronavirus cases.

While the economical expenses for the Coronavirus lockdown have kept escalating, PM Narendra Modi has begun to loosen some restrictive measures in a few regions in India. It may lead to the soaring of the new cases as people go out and contact each other more frequently.

While the pandemic outbreak doesn’t reach the peak, the central and state governments in the country have created hundreds of isolation beds for COVID-19 infected patients and dozens of thousands of emergency beds for severely ill ones.

Coronavirus Testing
Health experts believe the number of cases in India may be higher than the recorded cases.

And therefore, the healthcare system in India can immediately cope with the growing virus spread. The number of deaths in India regarding Coronavirus has reached 2,753, lower than China’s 4,637 deaths. However, India has much lower testing rates, so health experts wonder whether the Sars-CoV-2 cases in the country are recorded right or not.
