At present, there are 6,34,945 active cases of COVID-19 in India and the total tally now stands at 22,15,074.

India's novel coronavirus tally crossed the 22 lakh-mark with 53,601 fresh COVID-19 cases and 871 deaths. At present, there are 6,39,929 active cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the total coronavirus cases now stands at 22,15,074. Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh have reported the highest number of cases. However, infections are rising rapidly in states like Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh. 'Unlock 3.0' is underway. Globally, the confirmed number of coronavirus cases has reached 20 million, according to the tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.

However, health officials believe the actual number is much higher, given testing limitations and the fact that as many as 40 percent of all those who are infected have no symptoms.

The US, India and Brazil have together accounted for nearly two-thirds of all cases since the world hit 15 million on July 22. The three countries have been reporting a high number of COVID-19 cases as compared with other nations. Catch all the latest updates here:
