Health ministry officials said that as of now the country has logged 1.23 crore Corona patients, of which 1.15 crore have been cured. The number of active cases in the country os 6.58 lakh. The deaths so far due to the virus stand at 1,64,110.
On Friday 81,000 cases had been reported from across the country and the speed with which Coronavirus is now spreading in what seems to be the second wave has left people worried.
A senior doctor in the state capital said that the number of fatality cases are rising as people are ignoring initial symptoms and are being callous towards the protocol like social distancing, wearing masks etc.
Added to this the festival season of Holi, electioneering in some parts of India have added to the spike in fresh cases of COVID-19.
