The number of coronavirus (Covid-19) cases has surged across the world, and India is also witnessing an increase. It added more cases in one day (149 on March 28) than its total about less than a fortnight ago (110 on March 15), though the growth rate has been volatile (chart 1). This may well have to do with reporting and testing. However, the spread is undeniable. The number of districts affected has risen from 82 to 132 in a matter of days (chart 2).

The worst-affected states remain Maharashtra and Kerala. They accounted for more than a third of the cases.
