India’s COVID tally has surpassed Brazil to become the second most corona-hit country in the world.

"BJP government’s claims have been exposed with India becoming number 2 in the world in corona cases. The government took public data from the Arogya Setu but it failed to control spread of coronavirus. The truth of the BJP’s event management drama of 'thali, tali’ and lighting diyas is also in front of the public,” Yadav tweeted in Hindi.

India’s COVID-19 tally of cases went past 42 lakh with a record 90,802 people being infected in a day, while 32,50,429 people have recuperated so far, pushing the national recovery rate to 77.30 per cent on Monday, according to the Union health ministry data.
