India continues to witness more and more Coronavirus cases on a daily basis
The last 24 hours saw another record breaking number of cases, with 25,248 cases having been reported.

The total number of Coronavirus cases in the country are now very close to the mark of 7 Lakhs, making India the third most affected country in the world. The death toll stands at 19,693, with 425 deaths being reported in the last 24 hours.

On the other hand, the number of recoveries stand at 4,24,433, which is higher than the number of active cases. The number of tests have also crossed the mark of 1 Crore in the country, but the virus is far from over.

The virus continues to spread like wildfire in many states, while it is seeing a downfall in many others. Southern states like Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Tamil Nadu are now reporting more cases than any other state in the country.

The situation in Telangana is especially grim, given that enough number of tests are not being carried out in the state.

It is now up to all of us to make sure that we take proper care of ourselves.
