A total of 1,04,107 patients have recovered. With 260 deaths in 24 hours, the number of deaths due to COVID-19 stands at 6,075, 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.
