COVID-19 confirmed, recovered and deceased cumulative cases in India 2020

India reported over nine million cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) as of November 26, 2020, with more than 8.7 million recoveries and about 135 thousand fatalities. The country has been reporting new cases of the virus every day since March 2, 2020. While the number of new cases has been growing, some patients who tested positive under quarantine have made full recoveries.

Why the curve matters

The World Health Organization along with other global health authorities have repeatedly underlined the importance of “flattening the curve” to handle the novel coronavirus pandemic. What does it mean? Simply put, the idea is to reduce the number of new cases over a long period to allow people to have better access to healthcare and recovery without infecting others. If the current trend continues, the Indian health system would be overwhelmed leading to more deaths than recoveries. The most important idea is to cut transmission rates by practicing social distancing and following proper hygiene routines.

Situation overview

The western state of Maharashtra had the highest number of cases since early March. In order to cope with the crisis better, the government was making contingency plans to increase COVID-19 testing capacities of the country. At the same time, the country went into a total lockdown on March 25, making it the largest in the world, restricting 1.3 billion people. After further extensions, the country was divided into red, orange and green zones. Red zones were designated hotspots and will not see any relaxations in comparison to the areas considered less prone for the spread of the virus. Like other countries across the world, restrictions were slowly being lifted to attempt building economic momentum.
