The central government on Saturday said Covid-19 deaths in India are seeing a "sharp growth" of 10.2 per cent and the country is currently reporting its "sharpest growth rate" of new Covid-19 cases.

Chairing a high-level meeting with health ministers of 11 states, Union health minister Harsh Vardhan said, "India is currently reporting the sharpest growth rate of 7.6 per cent in new Covid-19 cases."

He said this growth rate is 1.3 times higher than the case growth rate of 5.5 per cent reported in June 2020. "This is leading to an alarming rise in daily number of active cases, which currently stand at 16,79,000," he said.

Recently, a report published by the Lancet Covid-19 Commission by India Task Force members warned that reeling under the second wave of Covid-19, India may see 1,750 coronavirus-related deaths per day, rising to approximately 2,320 by the first week of June.
