According to the Union Health Ministry, the number of cases in India as of 9 am on June 13 stands at 3,08,993, with 11,458 cases in 24 hours. India crossed the United Kingdom on Friday to record the fourth highest number of cases in the world. 

A total of 1,54,330 patients have recovered. With 386 deaths in 24 hours, the number of deaths due to COVID-19 stands at 8,884, as per government data.

Experts say that India should still be testing more than it currently is, and the number of cases detected is expected to go up as states ramp up testing.
