The new coronavirus pandemic has caused 37,148 new coronavirus cases and 587 deaths in India in the last 24 hours, which equates to more than 1.15 million infected people and more than 28,000 deaths, the Ministry of Indian Health reports.
Of the total number of infected, more than 720,000 have already recovered and the number of those who have died increases to 28,084. According to the Indian television broadcaster NDTV, the recovery rate of patients this Tuesday is 62.72 percent.
In this context, according to the Indian company, which works with British researchers, trials in India with the coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford will begin as soon as the corresponding license is available.
