COVID-19: Bengal may not be in a bad situation as many are suggesting it is

If one were to look at last one week data, Bengal is ranked 5th Nationally when it comes to searching for Coronavirus Symptoms. But, when it comes to checking out tests, they are only ranked 11. This is close to its national rank on confirmed cases. In fact, ever since Testing has increased in Bengal, the incidence of COVID positive cases has fallen from 6.2% of all Tests to 5% for the last one week. Increased Testing is unlikely to yield more cases, More cases are likely to be found as the spread increases over time, just like most States.
