ABSTRACT

Background: The article gives an outline of the database of the first and second waves through the different states, comparison of the two waves, factors responsible and the methodologies applied to contain them with future plan of action. Objectives: To study the trend and progression of COVID-19 in India to develop a better understanding about the disease and its recurrence and related complications. Methods: A detailed exploration of the COVID-19 data since inception of disease to June 4, 2021 is done taking into account the cumulative incidence rates, age wise distribution and case fatality / test positivity rates. Results: As of June 4, 2021, India reported 2,86,94,879 COVID-19 cases and 3,44,082 deaths accounting for 16.6% of the 17,25,89,831 cases and 9.2% of the 37,12,269 deaths reported globally. The second wave of the pandemic hit more severely than the first leading to high test positivity ratio, more fatalities and health system chaos with the post-COVID complications. Conclusions: India needs critical and continuous evaluation of the statistical data over a period of time to review the situation comprehensively and to act accordingly. The country needs to boost up its health care facilities and resources to fight this pandemic.
