As India attempts to flatten the curve of coronavirus and is currently under a 21-day lockdown period, some states are continuing to see a steady rise in cases. The 21-day lockdown is due to the virus’s incubation period of 14 days, and was slated to end on Tuesday, but an announcement for extension is expected with the Prime Minister’s speech at 10 am. Cases across the country have crossed 10,000. 

As testing increases, some states are recording spikes in cases and number of deaths. Experts say that India should still be testing more than it currently is, and the number of cases detected is expected to go up as states ramp up testing.

Countries across the world are seeing a spike in cases, with the US now the new epicentre of the novel coronavirus. Cases across the world are currently at 1,920,618 (according to the map by Johns Hopkins), with the US showing 26,641 new cases and 1,535 new deaths on April 13, and Spain having 3,268 new cases and 547 deaths.
