Covid-19 cases in India increasing at mommoth rate as public, leaders continue to disobey the lockdown rules.

India registered over 1,000 cases of novel coronavirus for the fourth straight day on Friday, taking the national tally close to 14,000. In the last four days, India has registered 4483 new cases of Covid-19 with 128 deaths and yet public and political leaders continue to make headlines for flouting lockdown rules.

While a massive crowd was witnessed at a religious festival in Karnataka’s Kalburgi on Thursday, the state on Friday witnessed similar scenes at the wedding ceremony of former CM HD Kumaraswamy’s son.

Crowding was also witnessed at various fruits and vegetable markets across the nation, where no social distancing was being maintained. Meanwhile, UP government sent around 300 buses to bring back students stranded in Rajasthan’s Kota despite restrictions on all non-essential movements.

However, despite these violations, the Centre claims that India is doing fairly good in controlling the spread of the disease. The health ministry has said that time it takes for the Covid-19 cases to double has slowed down in last one week as against three days before the nationwide lockdown came into effect from March 25.

Covid-19 cases in the country rose by 1,076 and 32 deaths were reported in 24 hours, taking the tally to 13,835 and the fatalities to 452, according to the latest health ministry data. A total of 1,767 patients have recovered, it said.

The Covid-19 cases had jumped by 1,463; 1,118; and 1,043 on the three days respectively from Tuesday this week.

In Mumbai alone, these cases rose to 2,120 with 77 more persons testing positive, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said, adding the number in the Dharavi slum area reached 101.

Tamil Nadu has reported 15 deaths while Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh reported 14 fatalities each. Punjab and Karnataka reported 13 deaths each. Rajasthan has registered 11 deaths while West Bengal reported 10 deaths fatalities. Some states have reported less than 10 deaths. Delhi, which has 1640 cases of Covid-19 with 38 casualties, has increased its list of containment zones to 68.
