Covid-19 new cases suddenly started increasing; Teams sent in 10 states to analyze the situation

After the coronavirus cases have increased again in several states of the country, the central government has sent teams in 10 states to find out why the cases of Covid-19 are increasing. The central government has sent teams to Maharashtra, Kerala, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Punjab, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, and Jammu and Kashmir. 

These teams will work closely with the state administration and try to find out why the corona cases are gaining momentum. 

Although India’s total active cases are below 1.5 lakh, there are some other states along with Maharashtra where corona cases have seen a sudden spurt since the beginning of this month. According to Health Ministry data, there are 12 states like Maharashtra, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Punjab, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal, Telangana, Delhi, and Haryana, where on average, more than 100 new corona cases are coming up every day. Among these 12 states, Kerala and Maharashtra are the states where more than 4 thousand new case reports are being done every day.

Maharashtra had the highest number of 6 thousand 218 cases on Tuesday. After this, 4 thousand 34 cases have been registered in Kerala, 442 in Tamil Nadu, 414 in Punjab, 383 in Karnataka and 348 in Gujarat. In Chhattisgarh, 274 new cases of infection were registered on Tuesday while in Madhya Pradesh, 248 new cases were reported within a day.

On Tuesday, 189 new COVID case reports have been reported in West Bengal and 94 in Jammu and Kashmir.

The laxity in the Corona rules is believed to be the biggest reason behind the increase in new cases, but the government wants it to find out the real reason behind this increase.

The new corona strains found in Maharashtra, Kerala, and Telangana have been ruled out as the reason behind this sudden increase. This is also because some of these strains have been present in India since last year.
