New Covid-19 cases and 195 fatalities in last 24 hours
NEW DELHI: As many as 3,900 new Covid-19 cases and 195 fatalities were reported in the last 24 hours, the biggest spike in a single day, the health ministry said on Tuesday and asserted that “some states” were not reporting cases in a timely manner, which is now being addressed.
Addressing the daily briefing on the Covid-19 situation in the country, joint secretary at the health ministry Lav Agarwal said the total number of cases stand at 46,433 and the death toll at 1,568.Transportation is among the worst hit by Covid-19 and within that aviation has been hit the hardest. For the month of March, India's domestic air passenger traffic fell by 11.8% compared with the corresponding month last year. Globally, passenger traffic dived 52.9%. A quick projection shows that Indian air passenger traffic could fall by nearly 100 million, taking it to the level it was four years ago.
“We are dealing with an infectious disease. Thus timely reporting of cases and their management is very crucial and gaps in these areas were noted in some states, which after due persuasion are being addressed,” Agarwal said.
The ministry said 1,020 Covid-19 patients recovered in the last 24 hours, taking the total number of those cured to 12,726, a recovery rate of 27.41 per cent.More Information Read At:

The global lockdown, so far, appears to be the best method to slow the infection rate down. Many economic activities have been stopped and barring India and China, according to the International Monetary Fund, economic growth will turn negative in most major economies in 2020. The good news, however, is for 2021, when projected growth will be much higher than growth many countries achieved in 2019. The International Monetary Fund says that if policy actions taken around the world are effective in preventing widespread firm bankruptcies, extended job losses, and system-wide financial strains, global growth will rebound to 5.8 per cent.From a niche practice restricted to a few industries, work from home will become a norm across most businesses in the post-Covid world. That will empty lots of office space, which can then be used for residential purposes. India is different from other countries like the US where nearly a quarter of so-called knowledge workers have the option of work from home. Considering social distancing in post covid world, many companies may maximise work from home options. Abid Neemuchwala, chief executive officer of Wipro Ltd, while announcing the company earnings for the quarter ended March said, "This (work from home) will define a new normal for a lot of industries and will create new opportunities for us to be able to do more work globally.” An idea that has found support from Rajesh Gopinathan, the chief executive officer and managing director of Tata Consultancy Services Ltd.
