In April, 6% of global COVID-19 cases were from India, six times more than the share in February. Also, in April, 2% of global COVID-19-related deaths were from India, again over six times more than the share in February. India’s share of cases and deaths is fast approaching the first wave's peak (9.9% of global cases, 6.7% of global deaths) observed in September last year. In India, Maharashtra continues to bear the brunt both in terms of cases and deaths. However, in April, due to a surge in cases in Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Karnataka, Maharashtra’s share reduced significantly. In terms of deaths too there is a marginal decline in Maharashtra’s share, following a sharp rise in Chhattisgarh’s and Uttar Pradesh’s share in total deaths.
