Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The majority of persons infected with COVID-19 will have mild to moderate symptoms and will recover without any particular therapy. Others, on the other hand, may become severely sick and require medical attention.
HOW IT EXPANDS
When an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, sings or breathes, the virus spreads through their mouth or nose in minute liquid particles. The particles range in size from larger respiratory droplets to tiny aerosols.
If you are close to someone who has COVID-19, you can become infected by inhaling the virus or by touching your eyes, nose, or mouth after coming into contact with a contaminated surface. Indoors and in crowded areas, the virus is more easily spread.
The sights of misery in India in earlier times were difficult to fathom. More than 202 million instances of COVID-19 have been documented as of May 4, with a rolling average of 378,000 cases each day, as well as more than 222,000 fatalities, which specialists say are likely to be understated.
Hospitals are overburdened, and medical personnel is weary and diseased. People (both physicians and the general public) are frantic about medical oxygen, hospital beds, and other requirements on social media.
Even before the second wave of COVID-19 cases began to emerge in early March, Indian Health Minister Harsh Vardhan claimed that the pandemic was nearing its “endgame.” Despite repeated warnings about the hazards of a second wave and the introduction of new strains, the administration gave the impression that India had defeated COVID-19 after many months of low case counts.
But here’s the good news – on Sunday, India reported the lowest single-day increases in total coronavirus infections and deaths in three months. The daily increase of 50,129 was the lowest since July 29, and the 578 Covid-19 deaths recorded on Sunday were the fewest in a single day since July 19.
In another sign that India’s infections may have peaked, the country recorded a net decrease in active cases of 12,526, reducing the total number of active cases to 668,154, the lowest since August 15 and about 35% lower than the peak of 1,017,754 on September 18. In addition, 62,077 additional cured cases were recorded in a single day, bringing the total number of recovered patients to 7,078,123, or 90 percent of all reported illnesses.
India, the third-most-affected country in terms of active cases and fatalities, and the second-most-affected country in terms of overall cases have gained 370,260 in the last seven days.
