New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Each and everything that happens around us impacts us in some way and that's why it becomes important for us to know what's happening around the world. Thus at Jagran English, we provide our viewers a 360-degree coverage in all genres to give them a brief insight about what’s happening around the world.

Today our focus will be on the ongoing coronavirus crisis. The novel coronavirus has affected over 10.77 lakh and claimed the lives of more than 26,800 in India so far. Maharashtra remains the worst affected state in India with over 3 lakh coronavirus cases while Tamil Nadu is at the second spot with more than 1.60 lakh coronavirus cases.

Meanwhile, we will be also focusing on Rajasthan where a political crisis has erupted after Sachin Pilot and 18 MLAs revolted against Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. Gehlot, meanwhile, has claimed that he has enough MLAs to support his government. He also met Governor Kalraj Mishra at Raj Bhavan in Jaipur yesterday after two MLAs of the Bharatiya Tribal Party (BTP) handed over their letter of support to him.
