Indian Doctors Find the Possible Reasons Why the Country Might Be Recording Very High Cases

Indian doctors have finally found the possible reasons as to why the country is recording higher daily cases than any other nation in the world.

Over the past one and half weeks, India has seen a sudden increase of daily cases which are averaging over 330000 cases daily and around 3500 death cases a day.

World Health Organizations (WHO) said that mass gatherings both in political and religious events might be the reason behind the rise. However, Indian doctors have found that most Covid-19 patients that they are receiving are those with obesity and overweight unlike the first wave of this pandemic where most of the patients were elderly people.

Among these patients, most of them who are adults younger than 40 years of age, doctors have said, that they are the majority that are experiencing severe symptoms, The Times of India reports.

Dr Suresh Kumar, medical director at Lok Nayak Hospital, has also confirmed that most of the young people who require hospitalization due to Covid-19 are either overweight or obese.

India is the second most affected country by Covid-19 just behind the US which leads with most Covid cases.
