The nation is only next to the United States in terms of Coronavirus infections and deaths and it is feared that it may eventually surpass the US.
The second most populous nation on earth has reached a grim milestone of six million COVID-19 cases and the figures will still climb.
The nation recorded 82,170 new Coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours. Even the United States never had such figures in one day.
According ITV, India is expected to overtake the USA in the coming weeks, to become the pandemic’s worst-hit country.
