Cases in Gurgaon cross 6,000-mark
With 109 more people testing positive for coronavirus on Monday, the total number of infections in Gurgaon has crossed the 6,000-mark.
According to the health bulletin released by the district health department, Gurgaon has so far recorded a total of 6,058 cases of coronavirus. A closer look at the bulletins released over the last three months reveals that the time taken by the district to record 1,000 fresh cases has been increasing since mid-June, which, officials say, is a sign of the slowing down of the pace of the infection.
Gurgaon crossed the 1,000-mark on the second day of June – one and a half months after the first case emerged in the district. Six days later, it crossed the 2,000-mark, after which it took only five days to cross the 3,000-mark.
Since then, however, the situation appears to have changed, with the district crossing the 4,000-figure six days later, and taking eight days to add another 1,000 cases. On Monday, nine days later, Gurgaon crossed the 6,000-mark. A total of 101 people — 1.6 percent of the total cases — have died so far.
