According to the Union Health Ministry, the number of cases in India as of 10 am on June 3 stands at 2,07,615, with 8,909 cases in 24 hours. 

A total of 1,00,303 patients have recovered. With 217 deaths in 24 hours, the number of deaths due to COVID-19 stands at 5,815, as per government data.

As testing increases and due to the influx of people from across India and countries, some states are recording spikes in cases and number of deaths. 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.

Cases across the world are currently at 63,78,237 with 3,80,251 deaths (according to the map by Johns Hopkins) as on June 3.
