NEW DELHI: With rapid rise in Covid-19 cases, the doubling time has steadily declined to 202.3 days on March 22, less than half of 504.4 days on March 1, official data show.

Active cases increased by 10,731 cases on Monday, as compared to a day ago.
Ten states—Maharashtra, Punjab, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan—are showing an upward trajectory in daily new cases since beginning of March.
The six states of Maharashtra, Punjab, Karnataka, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh and Tamil Nadu together accounted for 80.90% of 40,715 new cases reported on Monday.
