Continuous growth of this virus as US, India bear deadliest brunt

New Delhi/London, July 17 (UITV/IANS/) We thought this is going to go away pretty soon, but daily Covid-19 numbers are shockingly alarming and even after more than five months of the virus hitting us, a vaccine is nowhere in sight.

The unexplained surge has left the experts and the scientific community at large running out of options as to how to describe and handle this unprecedented situation.

With more than 77,000 new Covid-19 cases, the US has broken all the records for the number of confirmed infections registered in a single day, according to the Johns Hopkins University ((JHU).

In the last 24 hours, 969 new deaths were recorded in the US, the highest spike since June 10. The Covid-19 fatalities in the US earlier peaked in April, when the country registered an average of 2,000 deaths in a single day.

In India, within three days, the country recorded more than one lakh cases, taking the tally past the one million mark with over 25,000 fatalities, according to the Union Health Ministry data.
