On July 17, India became the third worst-hit country to record more than 1 Million coronavirus cases. The first rank was held by the U.S. and the second one was Brazil. Epidemiologists say India is still likely months from hitting its peak.
Cases in Brazil crossed the 2 million mark on July 16, doubling in less than a month as the country adds nearly 40,000 new cases a day. A patchwork of state and city responses has held up poorly in Brazil, in the absence of a tightly coordinated policy from the federal government.
The US, which leads the world with over 4 million cases, has also tried to curb the outbreak at the state and local level, with only limited success.
Recently a study conducted in South Korea founded that people are contracting the coronavirus from within their own households rather than contracting from outsiders.
Meanwhile, Covaxin, India’s first developed vaccine against the coronavirus, started its first phase of human trial. The human trial began at Delhi’s AIIMS. The first dose of the injection was given to a 30-year-old man.
