Coronavirus Outbreak: India records 64K+ cases in 1 day, tally now at 21,53,011

The World Health Organisation(WHO) said that airborne transmission of the novel coronavirus can occur during medical procedures that generate aerosols. The United Nations Agency said that it has been evaluating whether COVID-19 may also spread through aerosols in the absence of medical procedures.

The coronavirus cases in India, on Friday, crossed 7.90 Lakh with a record single-day jump of 26,506 new patients testing positive, as per the data by the Union Health Ministry. Over 4.95 lakh patients have been recovered to date. According to the official figures, there have been 21,604 deaths due to the infection. In the last 24 hours, 475 COVID-19 patients died.

Tamil Nadu Minister for Cooperation Sellur K Raju on Friday tested positive for the coronavirus. He is undergoing treatment in a private hospital in Chennai. So far, 11 Tamil Nady MLAs have been infected by COVID-19.

To restrain the spread of novel coronavirus in Uttar Pradesh, the Yogi Adityanath government on Thursday announced a three-day lockdown from 10 pm on Friday to 5 am on Monday. The decision was taken after reviewing the present state of the infection and to effectively check its spread, the chief secretary said in the order, adding all offices and markets will remain closed during this period, although medical and health services and essential services will continue as before.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organisation (WHO) says it is setting up an independent panel to review its handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the response by governments. The announcement follows strong criticism by US President Donald Trump’s administration of the global agency’s role in the crisis though the WHO said the review was not linked to the United States.

Globally, India has the third-highest number of coronavirus cases in the world after the United States (30,54,695) and Brazil (17,13,160).
