India crossed 1-crore mark for coronavirus infections as the country witnessed a substantial drop in daily Covid-19 cases and deaths in the past few weeks. The country continues to be the second-worst hit nation in the world after the first positive case was confirmed on January 30 in Kerala.
More than five crore people around the world have lived under lockdown as governments stepped up efforts to contain the pandemic, which has left over 16 lakh people dead globally.
Here’s the tally of Covid-19 positive cases in India and the state-wise impact:
Coronavirus in India: Total number of positive cases (including deaths): 1,00,56,172 as of December 20
States/UTs death toll (details are updated as we receive information): 145,793
|Andaman and Nicobar Islands||4,875||61|
|Dadra and Nagar Haveli & Daman and Diu||3,363||2|
|Jammu and Kashmir||118,263||1,841|
No. of people discharged: 95,80,402

While the Centre and state governments have been trying hard to check the Covid-19 spread by tracking, isolating and treating infected people, the daily rise in India cases is worrisome.
