The number of coronavirus cases in India is on a continuous surge with a record single-day spike every day. On Sunday, June 28, India recorded the highest single-day spike of more than 19,000 new coronavirus cases. The Ministry of Health confirmed that the total COVID19 cases in India now stand at 5,28,859. This includes 2,03,051 active cases, 3,09,713 recovered cases and 16,095 deaths.
In Delhi alone, the authorities recorded 2,889 new coronavirus cases and 65 deaths in the last 24 hours. With these figures, Delhi now has 83,077 COVID19 cases and 2,623 deaths. Fortunately, out of the total number, only 27,847 cases are active in the national capital.
The Health Ministry also confirmed that the recovery rate in India has further improved to 58.56 percent.
As per another data shared by the Health Ministry, India has recorded around 3,38,324 cases in the month of June itself. That means the infection started spreading rapidly when the government announced Unlock in India.
Also, the number of single-day cases has also increased sharply in the last 7 days. In an interview with one of the wire agencies, Union Home Minister Amit Shah explained that the government has increased its daily testing capacity by almost double across India in the last 10 days. This is one of the reasons why more cases are being detected. He further explained that it is good for the nation as those who have been detected will not be able to spread the virus further. He also said that those who have come in contact with the infected persons will also be traced and tested. This will help break the chain fast. This way the daily number of cases will start falling in the next 8-10 days.
As per ICMR data, 82,27,802 samples have been tested up to June 27 and 2,31,095 samples have been tested on Saturday alone.
