Coronavirus Live News, Coronavirus cases in India today, Unlock Live Tracker: June 10, 2021 – The day India lost over 6,000 people to Covid19 infection, officially. This huge jump in the daily corona tally is the result of the key update from Bihar. After an HC-mandated audit, the Bihar officials said that those who were recorded as ‘recovered’ patients were now updated as Covid fatalities. This sort of data purging will have a massive impact on not only national Covid tallies but state-wise trends also. Question is – will we see such revision from states such as Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat. Local media has been regularly reporting about how the official records don’t match with updates from cremation/burial grounds. In case all states start updating their numbers, India may see such a spike regularly.
If we take away the Bihar impact, the daily Covid deaths stood at 2,197. The number of daily caseload also remained below one lakh mark for third consecutive day. However, we have seen a slight increase in the daily tally.
However, more important point is collective Covid responsible behaviour. Which is missing since the unlock began. Be it sabzi mandis (vegetable market) of Varanasi or bazaars of Bihar, the crowded scenes show how people have simply forgotten the horrors of the second wave of the coronavirus. With the vaccination rate still very low in comparison with the desired target, such crowding may aggravate the spread of the virus. Because remember the virus hasn’t gone anywhere. Unlocking the economy is the need of the hour yet the irresponsible behaviour on part of the public may just bring back the devastation once again! Have we not learnt our lessons yet?
