Total confirmed cases of the coronavirus in India have surged past the 19-lakh mark, with over 35,000 deaths. Globally, the death toll from the virus has crossed the 7-lakh mark, with over 18 million infections worldwide.
Five most affected states by total tally of cases are Maharashtra (4,68,265), Tamil Nadu (273,000), Andhra Pradesh (1,76,333), Karnataka (150,000) and Delhi (140,232). Meanwhile, recoveries have mounted to 12,82,215, according to the Union health ministry data.
Testing for coronavirus is dropping in the US even as infections remain high and the death toll rises by more than 1,000 a day, a worrisome trend that officials attribute largely to Americans getting discouraged over having to wait for hours to get a test and days or weeks to find out the results.
