All eyes on vaccines as India cases cross 1 MILLION
The total number of corona cases in India surged past 100000 today. According to data published by news agency Press Trust of India at 9.30 pm, the total number of corona-virus cases in India stood at 10,00,202. India’s first case of COVID-19 was detected on January 30 in Kerala. The death toll from the deadly virus crossed 25,000-mark today.
The nation crossed a milestone on Thursday—a million Indians were infected by the corona-virus that is coursing its way through the country. More than 25,000 have perished.
Low mortality rates, rising recoveries, increase in testing and a boost to investment in health infrastructure have also emerged as a silver lining. While the corona-virus caseload is high at 1,001,508, the bulk of the infections are restricted to a handful of states.
