India is the fourth-worst affected country in the world, having surpassed the United Kingdom on Friday, with cases steadily increasingly despite a nationwide lockdown that began in late March and has since been loosened.

Confirmed cases in the worst-hit Maharashtra moved to 1,04,568, followed by Tamil Nadu (42,687) and Delhi (38,958).

Despite the rising case load, the recovery rate of patients was improving, with 1,62,379 people having been cured, the ministry said on Sunday.

Out of the total number of cases, 1,49,348 are active coronavirus cases in India.

With 311 deaths reported in the last 24 hours, the coronavirus death toll has now reached 9,195 in India.
