The number of confirmed cases in India has risen rapidly since the testing of suspected patients increased in the last week. India has been put under a nationwide lockdown since March 24 to contain the spread of the virus. According to reports, India has so far recorded 979 confirmed COVID-19 cases, of which 25 people have lost their lives. There are currently 875 active coronavirus cases in the country and 87 have been treated successfully.
COVID-19 has claimed more than 30,800 lives across the world and has infected more than 6,64,000 people globally since it first broke out in December 2019. China was the most affected country until last week 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.
