New Delhi : The country is plagued by the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the last few days, the number of corona-infected patients in the country has been on the rise. The situation has spiraled out of control as the number of patients is increasing rapidly. According to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the last option, but not as partial as it is now, is that a strict lockdown across the country, like last year, will only help break the chain of these deadly corona virus, says Indian medical experts.
Health advisers to the US president have said that the situation in India is very bad and that a lockdown is necessary. After that, the director of AIIMS, Dr. Randeep Guleria has also made it clear that the only solution left is a very strict nationwide lockdown, which has become inevitable. ‘In particular, the rate of corona infection is a positivity rate of 10 per cent or more in cities and areas where such a severe lockdown should be imposed immediately’, said Dr. Guleria.
Meanwhile, the second wave of corona continues in the country. More than 3 lakh patients were found for the last 12 consecutive days. But now in one day, the number of corona had gone beyond 4 lakhs. There has been some relief on Sunday amid rising cases of corona. In the last 24 hours, 3 lakh 50 thousand 598 patients of corona have tested positive in the country. So far 3701 patients have died. Meanwhile, 2 lakh 79 thousand 882 patients have been cured and released at home.
