New Delhi: – India has entered the list of top ten countries with the highest number of Coronavirus cases. From Sunday till Monday morning, 6,977 new cases were reported from around the country. This is the new record for the number of cases reported in one single day. This has taken the total number of Coronavirus cases in the country to 138,845. Whereas, it is being revealed that the number of cases in the country crossed 145,000 by Monday night. The pandemic claimed 60 more lives in Maharashtra and 1,436 new cases were reported.

India recorded the highest number of cases after the United States, Brazil, Russia, the United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, France, Germany and Turkey.
