India has booked more than six million confirmed coronavirus cases.

As of Monday, it became only the second country in the world to do so, beaten to the dubious record by the US.

To break the six-million-case total, India recorded over 80,000 new cases in the past 24 hours, according to figures released by the health and family welfare ministry.

However, there are signs that the pandemic could finally be slowing down.

It took 12 days for India’s caseload to go from five million to six million, which is a day more than the previous one-million rise.

In another positive sign, recoveries from the virus stand at more than five million, which is more than 80% of all cases.

Despite a small slowdown in the spread of the infections over the past 10 days, India continues to add the highest number of daily cases in the world.

The average daily count this week (Sept 21-27) was more than 84,000, according to the Times of India.

There are also signs that the percentage of recoveries is increasing.

In India, patients with mild to moderate symptoms are considered recovered after 10 days of first symptoms showing if they meet certain conditions. A test to confirm that they no longer have the virus is not required.

The only other country to report more cases than India, the US, now has more than 7.1 million infections, according to Johns Hopkins University.
