Covid-19 Live Updates: Top officials say masks are ‘most important, most powerful public health tool’


Indian the total number of cases exceeded five million on Tuesday, less than a month after the three million mark was reached.

More than 82,000 patients with coronavirus have died in India, but there have been far fewer deaths per capita in the country than in many others. Doctors say this reflects the younger and slimmer population of India.

India reported 90,123 new cases on Tuesday, with an average of more than 92,000 new cases per day for seven days.

The country took a tough stance early on and locked all its citizens in a national closure that was considered largely effective and complied with. Restrictions began to be lifted in May when economic hardships spurred its leaders give priority to reopening and recognize the risk of increased coronavirus infections.

However, the country’s public health system is very tense and some sick patients are unable to find hospital beds. Crowded cities, closure fatigue and contact tracing are major factors in the spread of the virus, which reached every corner of the country for 1.3 billion people.

The total number of Indian cases became the second largest in the world, lagging behind the US.
