The deadly pandemic of novel Coronavirus has only been spreading and infecting more and more number of people worldwide, and killing thousands more.

India started out with few, controlled cases. The government was also quick to impose a nationwide lockdown in order to curb the spread of the virus. This lockdown worked for a few days in controlling the infection but hasn’t been able to control it anymore from the past one month.

More than 6000 new cases have been reported yesterday, making it a new single-day high for India. The total number of cases in India have also crossed the mark of 1.2 lakhs by now.

India is now in the top 7 most affected countries because of Coronavirus. On the other hand, more than 3,500 people have also died in the country. Although the death rate is quite high, it is less when compared to many other countries.

The government has increased the testing, making sure that all those who have been infected are identified as soon as possible.
