India’s Covid-19 circumstances had been rising a lot slower than the worst-affected international locations. Even so, there’s a noticeable distinction after the lockdown was introduced.
The seven-day shifting common of the progress in the variety of circumstances was at 22.07 per cent when the announcement was made. It had since slowed to below 18 per cent.
Meanwhile, the variety of circumstances in international locations like Italy and the United States have surged, rising by many multiples of their preliminary numbers (see chart).
India’s lower numbers may should do with lower testing in India. The figures in the chart examine progress after hitting 100 confirmed circumstances. India’s trajectory trends far lower than the others, and the hole has widened over the final week.
