Every 10th household in India is right now reporting an active case within immediate family members and almost every fifth household in India is reporting a loss of life among near and dear ones, as per a survey.

This means one in every 10 Indian families has at least one family member suffering from Covid and one in every 20 Indian families has self-reported a death within the immediate or extended family, says Covid-tracker.

The tracker is reporting a high incidence of healthy people dying of Covid. As per the tracker, 58.9 per cent said that the person was completely healthy before and died of Covid itself.

And the highest number of deaths are being reported in the relatively young. 36.2 per cent of deaths occurred in the age bracket below 45 years. 14.9 per cent deaths are between 26 and 35 years and 19.1 per cent deaths between 36 and 45 years.

The fear remains about someone in the family getting infected or not getting treatment. This fear is unlikely to go down till the actual number of cases goes down and people start getting treatment and oxygen properly without getting too stressed about it.

The tracker is generally one to two weeks ahead of the official trendline, and we don’t see that happening for the next 6 to 8 weeks in near future.

The tracker found that Corona becomes the top issue, again in India and the number of confirmed positive cases and deaths within the immediate family as reported by Tracker is multiple times over the official Government numbers.
