According to AFP’s data, the number of Covid-19 cases has reached a record level in the past 24 hours.
While more than 893 thousand new corona virus cases were recorded, it was reported that the most important reason for this was India, which was most affected by the epidemic and the health system collapsed in recent days.
In the statement made by the Ministry of Health of India, 346 thousand 786 cases were detected in the last 24 hours, while the total number of cases increased to 16 million 610 thousand 481.
The number of daily cases in the country has reached the highest level ever seen worldwide today, as it was the day before and yesterday. Previously, 307 thousand 581 cases recorded in the USA on January 8 were the highest daily case increase seen in a country.
MOST CASE SEEN IN THE USA
While the country most affected by the corona virus in the world is the United States, there have been over 32 million cases in the country since the day the pandemic started.
In the USA, where 63 thousand 736 cases were seen the other day, approximately 571 thousand people have died due to Covid-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.
INFECTIOUS FEATURE OF THE VIRUS INCREASES THE NUMBER OF CASE
In India, which is one of the countries to meet the new wave of the epidemic worldwide, it is estimated that the types of Covid-19 mutated and increased contagiousness are effective in the recent increase in cases.
Specifically, the 3 mutated species emerging in South Africa, England and Brazil are seen as a source of concern by experts. These mutations of the virus were detected in 7 percent of 11,000 virus samples in India whose genetic sequence has been extracted since December 30, 2020.
Punjab state officials announced on March 24 that 81 percent of the 404 samples collected and sequenced in the state on January 1-March 10, the more contagious type of Covid-19 that first appeared in the UK was encountered.
Health Minister Harsh Vardhan admitted on April 8 that the lack of measures to reduce mass mobility and social interaction has contributed to the increase in cases.
Vardhan pointed out that religious festivals were celebrated, election rallies were held in 11 states where the cases increased the most, and people neglected the distance rules in collective events.
