Reportedly, Indore ranks at the 8th position among the top 10 cities reporting the highest COVID cases per million, across the country.

Several patients have recovered through home isolation

The coronavirus case tallies dipped marginally on Friday in comparison to those reported on Thursday, however, the medical infrastructure continues to suffer at the hand of the overall surge. As per reports, about 55,000 patients are getting COVID treatment from their homes as there is a shortage of beds in hospitals, COVID care centres and other such establishments. While this rings an alarm, several patients have also recovered through home isolation, instilling hope among patients and their families alike.

Increased COVID mortality in Indore

Indore's total caseload stands at 85,969 while the active tally is marked with 9,848 cases; the highest across Madhya Pradesh. The mortality count has also surged in the last 3 weeks, reporting casualties in the lower age groups, as well. An age-wise comparative analysis has revealed that death due to COVID infection has risen by 12% in people aged between 41 to 60 while a 1% rise has been noted in the 21to 41 age group.

Experts have pointed out that the second wave of coronavirus is far more dangerous than the initial one as it is causing severe infections in even the younger age groups. In the last month, Indore's COVID toll reported 90 fatalities and the total count still stands to be the highest across the state at 1,033 deaths.
