    COVID-19 cases in India reached the dreaded milestone of 1 million (10 lakh) on Friday morning, the ministry of health and family welfare announced. India reached the figure of 1 million cases after recording its highest-ever single-day spike of 34,956 cases in the 24-hour period ended at 8am on Friday.

    A total of 687 deaths were reported in the same period, taking the total number of fatalities to 25,602.

    India is now the third country to record over 1 million COVID-19 cases. The US continues to lead the list of countries with most COVID-19 cases, having recorded 3,695,025 cases till date, while Brazil has 2,014,738 cases.

    The rapid surge in COVID-19 cases has meant that India went from 9 lakh COVID-19 cases to 10 lakh in just three days. It took the same amount of time to go from 8 lakh cases to 9 lakh. It took 110 days for COVID-19 cases in India to rise to 1 lakh (on May 19). It took 39 days to go from 1 lakh cases to 5 lakh. It has taken merely 20 days to go from 5 lakh COVID-19 cases to 10 lakh.

    Congress leader Rahul Gandhi tweeted on Friday that the government must take concrete steps to combat the surge in COVID-19 cases. Rahul warned that at the current rate, India would have 20 lakh cases by August 10.
