A few days back Indians were rejoicing about the highest number of COVID19 cured patients of 11,264 in one single day. The curable percentage stood up to more than 47%. But soon the highest number of positive cases in one day has surfaced when the country has witnessed exactly 9,304 positive patients in one single day. This number has made the total number of cases in India to cross 2.16 lakhs now. In exact numbers, there are 2,16,919 COVID 19 cases among which 6,075 patients have already died.
The Disaster has hit hard now
A few months ago, many nations were appreciating the steps being taken by India for controlling the cases of coronavirus. But it seems now that the actual preventions and measures had loopholes that have led the country to such a disastrous situation now.
There can be a number of reasons that can be associated with this spike of positive cases suddenly and one of them can be the ending up of the lockdown. Though there are certain restrictions still imposed in some of the parts of the country, public has taken it to be the end of lockdown and many cities such as Delhi and Kolkata are again experiencing the same crowd on the streets as it used to be earlier.
Also, it has been noticed that during the transfer of the migrants from one state to another, the testing method shows about 3% of the migrants to have been tested positive. This can be also the weak testing system that may have been taken out irresponsibly that as resulted in the spread of the virus through the migrants also.
The cyclone Amphan and the cyclone Nisarga is another big factor that has aided in the spread of the virus. The cyclones have devastated the states of West Bengal and Maharashtra and this has forced many of the people to quit social distancing.
