For the sixth time in a row, India has again registered more than 50,000 new cases of coronavirus, which is a total of more than 1.8 million infected. This makes India the third country most affected by the pandemic.
The Ministry of Health reported Tuesday that 52,050 new cases and 803 more deaths have occurred in the last 24 hours, so the balance of COVID-19 in India is now increasing to 1,855,745 infected people and 38,938 deaths.
The Indian authorities have stated that out of these 1.8 million cases, 586,298 are still active, while 1,230,509 patients have been cured, which corresponds to a recovery rate of 66 percent, according to the Times of India. .
Prime Minister Narendra Modi ordered a national quarantine last March that has become the world’s largest containment by number: 1.3 billion. However, India has initiated a de-escalation with a three-phase plan.
