As the confirmed coronavirus cases in India shoot up spirally, the fight has become deadlier
Subsequently exponential rise in infections in last 4 days has multiplied the danger
Worries are beginning to mount if India will also witness a significant outbreak now

The country’s high population density is a big challenge in practising social distancing
Overburdened public health infrastructure is another challenge for India
High prevalence of non-communicable diseases puts additional burden on Indian health facilities
The number of people in India who have tested positive for Covid-19 has reached over 300
These figures have more than doubled in 3 days
Seven countries have thus far had more than 10,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19
It took 7 countries just 13-19 days to go from 100 reported cases to 10,000

ICMR’s sample size of 830 is too small for a country of India’s size.

Under-equipped healthcare system in India seems incapable of handling the massive outbreak.
The country only has nine beds for every 10,000 people
Next few weeks will prove crucial in its battle against the invisible enemy.
