Covid-19 in numbers

With the cases doubling every ten days, numbers in India could equal China’s in a matter of two weeks.

Covid-19 outbreak: India records largest one-day spike with 3,900 new cases, 195 deaths in last 24 hours
Even as India enters the third lockdown, the rising number of positive coronavirus cases poses a huge challenge to the government and health workers. With the cases doubling every ten days, numbers in India could equal China’s in a matter of two weeks. In contrast, countries in Europe are opening up, albeit carefully. The borders are still closed in most parts of the world.
