India is among the most densely populated countries in the world, which means COVID-19 spreads more rapidly in this territory. Moreover, the traditional health system is weaker than in European countries so India might be hit particularly hard by the coronavirus outbreak. Such factors as poor planning and a lack of protective equipment contribute to the risk of collapse of the nation's already-fragile health care system.

Since the first reported case in India, the number of patients with COVID-19 in the world's second-most populous country have passed 2,1M, with more than 43K deaths and 1,4M recovered patients. However, the estimated number of coronavirus cases in India is approximately 3,8M, which is three times higher than the official figures. As for today, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu are the states with the highest number of coronavirus cases in the country.

To contain COVID-19 pandemic, the Indian Government has adopted stringent measures. All districts in the country have been divided into three categories: 'red', 'orange' and 'green' zones based on the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases reported there. The central strategy of Indian officials is to turn the red zones into orange and thereafter into green zones. The Indians are advised to use homemade face covers and wash their hands. Kindly get acquainted with the basic protective measures and most common COVID-19 symptoms below.
