The rising number of Covid-19 cases hasn't so far been accompanied by an increase in the number of daily deaths attributed to the pandemic.

There were 23 deaths around the middle of last month on a seven-day moving average basis, according to numbers from independent tracker covid19bharat.org. This coincides with a downward trend in cases at the time, with 2,637 daily cases countrywide on a seven-day moving average basis. The number of daily cases has since risen to over 11,000 this week. The daily death numbers came in at 16 as of Monday.

Hospitalisation was checked for three major metros
