India Stands 9th on Coronavirus Worst-hit Data List

A few months back in February, India was being praised by many other nations about how it has taken the step of early Lockdown of the country to control the spread of coronavirus. But now the data coming up is showing some other picture altogether. The number of corona-positive patients is continuously increasing and it has crossed the benchmark of 1.5 lakhs this week. 

India has surpassed China’s official records

China had announced officially that there were as many as 83,000 people who got infected by the coronavirus in their country in total among which 4,634 people died. 

In the initial stages, India was known to have a much lesser number of cases in comparison to not just China but also in comparison to many other countries that are badly affected by the condition. But now the recent data say that India is about to cross the death toll of China. The number of people affected by the coronavirus in India has crossed 1.5 lakhs and by now there are as many as 4,531 deaths recorded in the entire country. This is quite close to the death number of China when it was suffering from the condition.

After China got recovered from the coronavirus, other countries across the globe started getting affected by the infection. Some of the majorly devastated countries across the globe currently are the US, Italy, Germany, Brazil, Spain, Russia, Iran, and Turkey. 

Italy was in the news a month back about how they have lost hopes of getting control over the condition and how they have claimed that they are not able to handle the situation anymore. Being one of the countries to have the finest healthcare systems, when Italy stated such a condition, it was a high alert for other nations across the world and since then the procedure of lockdown started.

What is going wrong?

The country started off quite well with an early lockdown of the country and many related precautions. But amidst the lockdown situation also, the number of coronavirus patients started increasing uncontrollably since the month of March. 

There can be a number of reasons to it such as confusion among the Government officials regarding transferring the migrants from one state to another, not being able to control the general public who are not following precautionary measures and many others.
