Covid: Karnataka tally 5th highest, but 2nd in active cases | India News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Karnataka, which on Monday crossed 1 lakh Covid-19 cases, occupies the fifth place in the country so far as the total number of cases go, behind only Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Delhi and Andhra Pradesh.
However, the state has the second highest number of active cases in absolute terms, after only Maharashtra, which has nearly 3 lakh more total cases than Karnataka.
And, when you look at the proportion of active cases to the total number of cases, Karnataka, with 60% of all patients under treatment, beats even Maharashtra, where only 36% of the cases are active. Nationally, 33% of all cases are active.

Karnataka is battling a problem of a dip in the pace of recoveries, which experts say is due to an increase in the number of acute cases.
Dr Giridhar Babu, member, ICMR task force on research and surveillance, and Karnatak Covid task force, explains: “Earlier, most cases in Karnataka were just infections where patients’ conditions remained well under control, while now there are more cases where the infection has progressed to the disease stage, which, naturally, take longer to recover.”
As on July 29, Karnataka had 1.1 lakh Covid-19 cases of which 67,447 or 60% were still under treatment. Comparatively, Maharashtra had 4 lakh cases of which 36% (1.4 lakh) are active cases.
While Tamil Nadu, Delhi and Andhra Pradesh have more total cases than Karnataka, their active cases accounted for only 25% (TN), 8% (Delhi) and 51% (AP), and none of them have more absolute numbers than Karnataka.
Even as Maharashtra and Tamil continue to add a high number of new cases each day — more than Karnataka — their recoveries are much higher than Karnataka which has resulted in a smaller jump in active cases in those states. It is the reverse when it comes to the number of discharges, where Karnataka has added fewer than Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, while Delhi has actually seen a reduction in the number of active cases in the past month.
