In a significant development, India on Tuesday crossed 15-Lakh-mark in coronavirus cases and inched towards the second spot on the list of countries the worst affected by COVID-19.
At present, the US is in number one position and then comes Brazil in the second spot with 2.4 million cases. The US has 4.2 million cases at present. As per updates, nearly 16.5 million people have contracted the infection around the globe with 654,860 deaths.
The development comes a day after PM Modi said that the right decisions taken at the right time led India to be in a better position as compared to other countries to fight coronavirus.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, earlier in the day, said that the country’s COVID-19 fatality rate has progressively declined to 2.25 percent from 3.33 percent on June 18, while the recovery rate increased from around 53 percent in mid-June to more than 64 percent now.
