India Coronavirus Cases: How India Compares 100 to 1 Lakh Covid Cases | India News


NEW DELHI: The number of coronavirus cases in India crossed the 1-lakh mark on Tuesday, nearly four months after the country reported its first Covid-19 infection. However, compared to some of the severely affected nations, India’s growth rate of Covid-19 has been much slower.

It took 64 days for the number of coronavirus cases to rise from 100 to 100,000 in India, according to data compiled by the ministry of health and family welfare and worldometer.info.

The data shows that India, which imposed a strict blockade on March 25 when it had just over 600 cases, has performed relatively well in slowing down the spread of the virus compared to countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, France and Germany. .
