India likely to reach the threshold point of its doctors' workforce by mid-June
Number of active covid patients by date (projected figures for 1 June onwards)
Threshold active patients is calculated using the doctor-patient ratio of Maharashtra on 23 May, when the state requested Kerala for additional doctors. The threshold should not be seen as an indicator of complete collapse of the health system. The rate of growth of active patients is based on compound daily growth rate in May. The total number of MCI-registered doctors in India is 1,201,354 as of 30 September 2019, based on data presented by the health ministry in Parliament.
