In the case of corona infection, the situation in India is getting worse day by day. The infection is growing rapidly in 16 states of the country including Maharashtra, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. The situation is that every sixth new infection of the world is being found in India. In terms of total patients also, India has overtaken Brazil to the second position. More infected than India are in America only. On the other hand, in Madhya Pradesh's capital Bhopal, it has been announced to impose a complete lockdown as Corona cases increase. The entire lockdown will be imposed in Bhopal from 9 pm to 19 April.
The severity of the epidemic can be gauged from the fact that once more new cases were being received from India in the US and Brazil every day, and today more cases are coming out in India alone than in the two cases being received in these two countries. . If we talk about the last 24 hours, there were 1,68,912 new cases in India, while about 48 thousand new patients were found in America and about 38 thousand new patients in Brazil.
According to the Union Health Ministry, cases of infection are increasing rapidly in Maharashtra, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab, Telangana, Uttarakhand, Andhra Pradesh, and Bengal. Due to increasing cases in these states, the total number of infected people has exceeded 1.35 crore. The total infected are 1.34 crore in Brazil and 3.19 crore in the US.
During this period, 904 more people have also died due to corona infection. This is the largest number of deaths due to the epidemic in one day since October 18, 2020. With this, the figure of the dead has reached 1,70,179. So far, more than 1.21 crore patients have been cured out of the total infected, but the recovery rate of patients has fallen below 90 percent (89.86 percent). However, the good thing is that the death rate is also decreasing and it is currently at 1.26 percent.

Uddhav government may take a big decision in Maharashtra in 2-3 days
In Maharashtra, the corona virus infection has gone out of control. In such a situation, the Uddhav Thackeray government of Maharashtra is going to put a lockdown to break the chain of corona infection in the state. However, when will the lockdown take place? It has not been mentioned by the government. Due to the rapid increase in the cases of Covid-19, the Maharashtra government decided on Monday to postpone the 10th and 12th examinations to be conducted by the state board this month. The 12th board examination in the state was scheduled to start from April 23 and the class 10 examination would start from April 30. It is clear from this decision of the government that the government can announce the lockdown in a day or two. There, Maharashtra government minister Aslam Sheikh said on Monday that the government can take a big decision in the next 2-3 days. The only way to break this chain is for the government to bring a lockdown-like situation. I question the management of the central government that if Maharashtra has the highest number of cases then why are they giving the lowest vaccine.
