According to data by worldometer, there are currently 9,240 confirmed coronavirus cases in India, most of which have been recorded in the state of Maharashtra, 1,619 to be precise. As many as 331 people have lost their lives due to COVID-19 in the country, while 7,813 cases still remain active. Out of the 331 reported deaths in India, 149 occurred in Maharashtra.
The deadly coronavirus infection has claimed more than 1,14,000 lives across the world and has infected over 18,58,000 people globally since it first broke out in December 2019. China was the most affected country until last month before Italy and Spain surpassed it to record the most number of deaths anywhere in the world due to COVID-19. The virus is believed to have originated from a seafood market in China's Wuhan city, the epicentre of the disease, where animals were reportedly being traded illegally.
