The novel coronavirus -- caused by SARS‑CoV‑2 -- has affected 47,54,357 people in India so far and claimed 78,586 lives, taking the country's fatality rate to 1.65 per cent. Out of the total number of cases, the active number of cases stands at 9,73,175.

"India's COVID-19 recoveries have witnessed a steep exponential rise - from 50,000 in May to over 36 lakhs in September. A high level of more than 70,000 recoveries reported every day. Recoveries are nearly 3.8 times the Active Cases (under 1/4 total cases)," said the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare earlier in a statement, as reported by news agency ANI.

The coronavirus cases have been surging at an alarming rate in India, especially after the country started lifting the COVID-19-induced lockdown in a phase-wise manner. India currently is the second worst affected country by the pandemic after the United States of America (USA).
Meanwhile, the Centre has urged people not to panic, saying the situation is under control and country has a recovery rate of more than 77 per cent. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday urged people to be cautious, saying "jab tak dawai nahi, tab tak dhilai nahi. Do gaj ki doori, mask hai jaroori".
