India in Covid crisis; Indications are that the country will overtake Brazil, which ranks second in virus cases

India, currently the world’s third-largest coronavirus-infected country, is expected to become the world’s number one country soon. Covid is spreading strongly across the country.

In the last few days, more than 70,000 cases have been reported in the country, which makes the citizens anxious.

According to statistics, India will soon overtake Brazil, which is currently ranked second. The South Asian country, home to the world’s poorest population, is on the brink of disaster.

Since the BJP government began “reopening the economy” in late April, there has been a significant increase in Kovid-19 cases in the country.

As of May 1, there were only 25,000 cases and 1,150 deaths in India. According to official figures, the number of infections today has risen to over 375,000 and the death toll to 66,000.

Underlining that the virus is accelerating its spread, the number of new infections and deaths has increased week by week since the onset of the pandemic in the last seven days.

The government implemented a lockdown on March 25 in the country in the wake of the rising pandemic but it did not help prevent the spread of the disease.

This is because the government has not used the time to increase the financial support required for the health care system, nor put in place a system of mass testing and contact tracing to identify and contain infections.

Despite the alarming rise in the corona virus, the Modi government continues to argue that its government has delivered an exemplary response, especially to the working class and the rural poor.

In his Independence Day speech on August 15, Modi said that India was doing well in the fight against the deadly epidemic. The indomitable will power and determination of 130 crore countrymen will make us win over Corona virus and we shall definitely win, he added.
