In India, Covid-19 cases have spiralled up in the last fortnight of December, with experts saying this could be the beginning of a third wave of the pandemic in the country. During the summer when a deadly second wave swept the country, it took 27 days for daily cases to grow from 800 to over 2,000 in Mumbai.

A comparison of four metro cities shows that Delhi has recorded the highest growth in positive infections in this period, while Mumbai has recorded the steepest growth in test positivity rate or the number of positive cases per 100 samples tested.
