Coronavirus Cases in India Today, Coronavirus Statistics India Highlights: With the second wave of the coronavirus unleashing unimaginable fury, India has become home to almost half of the total Covid-19 infections around the globe. While the Supreme Court is set to hear the Centre’s plea over Covid management on May 13, in National Capital, the Delhi Police has decided to collect data of Covid deaths directly from the crematorium/burial grounds. The Indian Express report comes amid various accounts of gross mismatch in official figures and the ground reality. On the vaccination front, it is all about luck. While there have been reports of people getting their Covid jab, the issues with the CoWin slot continues. There’s also a demand for making more localised app as well as new ways of registering beneficiaries from weaker sections of the society. There are also bizarre reports of bodies floating in Buxar. Many say they are of Covid patients, who didn’t get proper cremation. The hinterland is reporting about massive cold and cough wave. With negligible testing, nobody knows whether it is normal flu, typhoid or Covid-19 infection.

    Coronavirus Lockdown Live tracker: Second Covid wave seems to have flattened but won't end before July, says virologist Shahid Jameel

    India's second COVID-19 wave seems to have flattened but the climb down will be a more prolonged, long drawn-out process than the first and will possibly run till July, eminent virologist Shahid Jameel said here on Tuesday. Though the new variants of the virus may partly be responsible for the explosion in the number of cases, there is no indication the mutant versions are more lethal, added the director of the Trivedi School of Biosciences, Ashoka University, amid mounting worries about what is fuelling the second wave in India. Addressing an online event organised by the Indian Express, Jameel noted that it is a little too early to say if the Covid wave has peaked. 'The curve may have flattened but the other side of the peak is not going to be an easy climb down. It's possibly going to be a more prolonged long-drawn-out process running possibly till July, That means, even if the curve starts to decline, we will continue to have to deal with a large number of infections every day,' Jameel said. | Read More

    Coronavirus Lockdown Live tracker: After Oxygen, its vaccine politics between Delhi Government and Centre; CM Arvind Kejriwal writes to PM Modi

    The issue of Oxygen has not died yet and the politics over vaccines have intensified between the Delhi government and the Centre. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written PM Narendra Modi requesting him to allow other companies to manufacture the COVID-19 vaccines. He said in the letter that given the outbreak of the COVID-19, every citizen of the country must be given two doses of vaccines as soon as possible. “Presently, only two companies are producing vaccines in India. It’s not possible to vaccinate the entire nation by relying on just two companies. For this, the production of vaccines will have to be done on a war footing. Therefore, I request you for the benefit of the nation that you allow mass production of the COVID-19 vaccines. Not only two, all the companies in the country which have the desired capacity be allowed to manufacture vaccines,” said Kejriwal in his letter. | Read More
