India has reached 1.8 million cases of coronavirus by adding more than 50,000 new infections in a single day, the Asian giant’s Ministry of Health reported on Monday.
In the last 24 hours, 52,972 new positive results and another 771 deaths have been recorded, which increases the balance of COVID-19 in India to 1,803,695 infected people and 38,135 deaths.
The ministry has detailed that only 579,357 of the total confirmed cases remain active, while 1,186,203 people have managed to overcome the disease caused by the virus, which according to The Times has a 65 percent recovery rate from India.
This is the fifth day in a row that the country has registered more than 50,000 new cases, confirming the upward trend in the contagion curve. India ranks third in the world ranking of those most affected by the coronavirus after the United States and Brazil.
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.
