The speed of corona virus in the country has become uncontrollable. At present, there is no possibility of deficiency in it. New cases of infection are increasing at a very fast pace, along with this the number of deaths is also increasing significantly. Over 2.95 lakh new cases of corona infection have been reported in the last one day and during this time more than 2 thousand people have lost their lives. Most of the new cases have been found in 10 states only. In Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, the infection remains very critical. The maximum number of new cases have been found in these states.

According to the data released by the Union Ministry of Health, in the last 24 hours, a record 2023 people have died due to corona infection and more than 2 lakh 95 thousand new cases have been registered. After this, the total number of positive cases in the country has increased to 1,56,16,130. The total number of active cases in the country is 21,57,538 and the total number of cured patients has reached 1,32,76,039.
