The COVID-19 tsunami in India is not over. The total number of Corona cases in the country has exceeded 20 million cases on Tuesday (4/5/2021).
Quoted from AFP, India reported as many as 357,229 new cases of Corona on Tuesday. This number is 10,918 less than yesterday’s cases, namely 368,147 cases.

It is known that India has been reporting more than 300,000 cases of Corona every day in the past week.

According to an infectious disease expert from the United States, Anthony Fauci, India could end this spike in cases if the lockdown was imposed even if it was only temporary.

“Nobody likes a lockdown … But if you do it for only a few weeks, your (State) could have a significant impact on the dynamics of the outbreak,” Fauci explained.

However, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, is still optimistic that the COVID-19 tsunami in India can be overcome without having to implement a national lockdown.
