With 1,859 Cases per Million, Nasik Catapults to Become Worst-Hit City Amid Covid Crisis

  • | Saturday | 17th April, 2021

Night Curfews have been imposed in both the metro cities to curb the spread. At a review meeting held on Friday, PM Modi suggested that the production of medical oxygen should be scaled up while India continues to reel under the second wave of crisis. 

As India continues to witness a sharp rise in Covid cases with every passing day, a report by TOI claims that the four cities registering the highest number of infections per million population all belong to Maharashtra with Nasik being the worst hit of them all.

As per reports, Nasik has been found to have registered the highest number of cases per million population over the last month followed by Nagpur, Pune, and Mumbai.

However, calculating the number of cases per million might be a more efficient method of comparing the covid situation as absolute numbers may project a misleading picture taking into account the population size of a city.

For example, a finding showed that Mumbai and Delhi with populations of over 20 million registered a single day hike of 19,400 and 14,300 cases in the past one month, while Lucknow with a much lesser population size registered 4,500 cases on April 15.

Maharashtra and Delhi reported their biggest-ever single-day surge in Covid cases on Friday. While Delhi reported 19,486 Covid cases in the last 24 hours, Maharashtra logged in 63,729 infections.
