The number of daily COVID-19 cases in Bengaluru has seen a dramatic 97% decline since the second wave peaked in April. But, the number of ICU cases has been less quick to fall, as data shows. Even though over a seven-day period from June 20 to 27, the number of ICU cases declined by 28% from 518 to 372, the proportion of ICU cases to active cases has never been higher. On April 30, when Bengaluru Urban hit its second wave peak, only 0.38% of the city’s 2.59 lakh active cases required ICU care. On June 27, this proportion was 0.58% of the 63,473 active cases.
