Even as India has very fewer cases when compared to countries like the USA and China, there could be a huge outbreak at any time in our country, which is the second most populous in the world.

The government has been doing a great job of containing the virus so far, with the 21-day lockdown that it has put into effect.

On April 6th, India has recorded a total of 773 cases, making it the most number of cases recorded in a single day in the country. However, the number of cases recorded on April 7th and April 8th have been very less in comparison. A total of 508 cases were reported on the 6th, and 405 cases on the 8th.

India has reported a total of 5,360 cases so far, with 164 people dead and 468 people recovered.
