    The total number of coronavirus cases in the country crossed two million on Tuesday with more than 56,000 cases reported in the last 24 hours. India continues to be the third worst-hit country in the world behind Brazil (2.8 million) and the United States (5 million).

    The total number of confirmed cases now stands at 20,06,760. While 13.28 lakh patients recovered, over 40,000 have succumbed to the disease so far.

    India added the new five million cases in just nine days with an average 50,000 cases being reported each day.

    Maharashtra, with 4.6 lakh cases, remains the worst-hit state by the pandemic, followed by Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh.

    According to the Union health ministry, as many as 46,121 patients were discharged from various hospitals in the last 24 hours. India’s recovery rate rose to 67.62 per cent while the fatality rate further dropped to 2.07 per cent.

    “With such consistent increase in recoveries, the gap between recovered patients and active COVID-19 cases has reached 7,32,835,” the ministry said in a statement.

    The actual case load of the country (active cases) is 5,95,501 which is 30.31 per cent of the total positive cases. They are under medical supervision either in hospitals or in home isolation.

    The ministry said under the ‘Whole of Government’ approach, the public and private sector resources are combined towards the COVID-19 response and management under the Centre-led strategy.

    The statement added that India’s resolve to rapidly increase the number of tests done per day has resulted in a successful march towards 10 lakh per day testing capacity with 6,64,949 tests conducted on Wednesday. The cumulative testing as on date has reached 2,21,49,351.
