Coronavirus cases have been rising at an alarming rate in India. India at present is the third worst affected country in the world after the United States of America (USA) and Brazil. However, India's low mortality rate and high recovery rate offer a ray of hope in the country's fight against the deadly pathogen that was first reported in China's Wuhan last year.

Meanwhile, Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has said that the country will be able to control the pandemic by Diwali, adding that India will get its first vaccine against the pathogen by the year end.
