‘India reached Covid-19 peak in September, likely to have over one crore cases by February 2021’ | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Number of active symptomatic Covid-19 cases in India has already peaked at around 10 lakhs on September 17 and the cases, which are now declining, may reach the cumulative figure of 1.06 crore with negligible growth by the end of February next year, a government’s expert committee said on Sunday.

Releasing its projection based on a mathematical model, the Committee, however, said this number would start rising again if proper practices of masking, disinfecting, tracing, and quarantine were not followed. “This is not a reason for us to relax because this nice downward trend will continue only if we continue with the protective measures,” said chairman of t...
