Vikram Chandra analyses Covid-19 spike in India & other top news

India on Friday saw a record daily spike with over 55,000 Covid-19 cases and has now overtaken countries like Italy, France and Spain in the death toll and is now at number 5 in the world.

Though, the absolute number of Covid-19 cases are high, the per capita numbers are relatively low.

The silver lining for India is the healthy recovery rate at 64% and a low fatality rate at 2.21%, which is better than many countries.

While India has managed to test over 6 lakh people per day, there is a need to further increase the testing.
