India's daily Covid-19 cases soar past 100000 for first time

India surpasses 100,000 daily COVID-19 infections for the first time as politicians stage massive election rallies

The country is only the second - after the United States - to record so many new cases in one day.

Punjab has contributed 4.5 percent of the total cases in the country in the same period but has accounted for 16.3 percent of the total deaths, a matter of serious concern, the statement said. At 29%, the state continued to record a high daily positivity rate. He directed officials to rush high-level central teams to hotspot states/UTs like Maharashtra, Punjab, and Chhattisgarh to decode the reason for the sudden spike in Coronavirus infections.

India reported a record rise in coronavirus infections on Monday, becoming only the second country after the U.S. to register more than 100,000 new cases in a day, as hospitals in its worst affected state are overrun by patients. However, this time the daily rise in cases has galloped at a much faster pace taking just 25 days (March 10 to April 4) to cross the grim milestone of one-lakh infections. Over 57,000 positive cases were reported from Maharashtra alone, a new record for the state that has now imposed a weekend lockdown, as the national tally crossed 1.01 lakh, according to latest reports available - a few states like Odisha and Telangana report their numbers the next morning.

Apart from enforcing covid appropriate behaviour, the Prime Minister highlighted availability of beds, testing facilities and timely hospitalization. "...the measures to control the pandemic remain the same and hence implementation of various protocols for COVID-19 management are all the more critical in those areas", the PMO said. About 490 deaths were also reported on Sunday, with Maharashtra accounting for 222.

Health unit regions transitioned back to the COVID-19 Response Framework, with five colour-coded levels of varying restrictions. The latest round of measures stop short of the "stay-at-home" order imposed during another wave of infections in January.

Kerala: 11,35,233 total cases, 4,668 deaths, 11,02,359 recoveries. Madhya Pradesh reported 3,178 new cases. It now ranks third behind the U.S. and Brazil in terms of total confirmed cases, and fourth behind the U.S., Brazil and Mexico in terms of deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

In the meeting, a brief presentation on the performance of the COVID-19 inoculation drive was also made, and the details of the coverage of vaccination in various groups, performance with respect to other countries and analysis of states' performance were deliberated.

Notably, India, which is witnessing the second wave of the pandemic, added 5,49,423 Covid-19 cases over the last week, while U.S. and Brazil logged 4,42,981 and 4,50,268 cases, respectively. It was suggested that daily performance analysis should be shared with States and UTs as feedback for corrective actions.

About 75 million citizens have been vaccinated so far in the country of 1.3 billion people.
