The number of new corona virus cases in India has reached a record high. Nearly 153,000 new cases were registered on Sunday, the largest number since the eruption.
As the number of victims has increased, the South Asian government has banned the export of the antiviral drug Remdecivir, which is used to treat covitamin patients.
According to Reuters, India is one of the six new diseases reported in the world. The number of new cases per day broke a record in the country six times this week.
The death toll rose to 839 on Sunday, more than five months later. India has already recorded more than 13 million epidemics, making it the third highest epidemic in the world after the United States and Brazil.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday launched a four-day “vaccination festival” aimed at vaccinating as many people as possible against the corona virus. India has seized more than one hundred million vaccines since mid-January, but many Indian states are complaining about vaccine shortages.
According to officials, one of the main reasons for the rapid spread of the disease is that people do not wear masks and do not postpone many mass events, religious and political rallies in recent weeks.
On Sunday, in the northern part of the country, in Haridwar, a dense crowd gathered for morning prayers at the Kumbh Mela Hindu pilgrimage, with most of the participants not wearing masks.
Due to the increase in the number of victims, the Indian government has banned the export of Remtacivir and its active drugs until the situation improves, according to a statement on the government’s website on Sunday. Remtacivir is manufactured by seven pharmaceutical companies in India and exported in bulk to the United States. (MDI)
