India Covid deaths at 1.25L; last 25K in 35 days as daily toll dips | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Deaths from the Covid-19 pandemic in India crossed the 1.25 lakh mark on Friday, but the daily fatality numbers have come down significantly over the past month. The last 25,000 deaths came in 35 days as compared with just 22 days taken for the toll to rise from 75,000 to1lakh.
India’s coronavirus toll had touched 1 lakh on October 2, which was also the last time that the daily toll had crossed the 1,000 mark. Since then, daily fatalities have been steadily falling in tandem with the fall in infections, although numbers have risen slightly this week, mainly on account of old deaths being added in Maharashtra as part of data reconciliation over two days.
Meanwhile, the daily tally of cases in the country crossed 50,000 for the second time this week, with the addition of 50,314 new infections on Friday, as per TOI’s data collated from state governments. With this, the slight uptick in the count of fresh cases seen through this week, continued on Friday. The overall Covid-19 caseload in the country on Friday stood at 84,61,771.
For the first time, Delhi led the tally of daily cases with a count of 7,177, the highest number of fresh infections recorded in the capital. Haryana too continued to report a spike with 2,267 cases detected on Friday. The day’s death toll was 577, lower than the counts in the past two days but still higher than the tolls reported on any day last week. Maharashtra recorded 5,027 fresh detections on Friday while 1,843 previous cases from Nagpur were added to the tally.
