All the states in India were yet to report their final numbers for the day. Some states like Delhi and Odisha reveal their numbers only the next morning.
China’s numbers have been rising at a snail’s pace for over two months now. New infections have all but stopped. The total infections in China had crossed 80,000 almost three months ago but further spread was controlled, almost overnight.
The cases in India, on the other hand, still seem far from their peak. For the last few days, India has been reporting almost 4,000 cases every day.
There are now only ten countries which have more cases than India — the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Brazil, France, Germany, Turkey and Iran.
