Surpassing Russia, India Now Third Worst-Hit Nation By COVID-19; Death Toll Nears 20,000
Meanwhile, total infections in Russia stand at around 681,000 and about 10,000 have died. Brazil and America are only two countries above India in the list of Coronavirus affected countries. There are 1.6 million cases in Brazil and 29 million in the US. Experts believe that if the ambit of COVID-19 testing is increased in India, then Brazil is likely to be left behind. Trends so far suggest that the Central and State governments have failed miserably in preventing infection. Despite the passage of three months, the number of coronavirus patients is increasing rather than decreasing. More than 24,000 cases were found for the second day running on Monday.
India reports a spike of 24,248 new #COVID19 cases and 425 deaths in the last 24 hours. Positive cases stand at 6,97,413 including 2,53,287 active cases, 4,24,433 cured/discharged/migrated & 19,693 deaths: Ministry of Health & Family Welfare pic.twitter.com/3iPDtPJyvN— ANI (@ANI) July 6, 2020
