India is attempting to flatten the curve of the novel coronavirus and is currently under an extended lockdown, as some states are continuing to see a steady rise in cases. New lockdown guidelines are in place and India will see a phased exit from lockdown from June 8.

According to the Union Health Ministry, the number of cases in India as of 9 am on June 10 stands at 2,76,583, with 9,985 cases in 24 hours. 

A total of 1,35,206 patients have recovered. With 279 deaths in 24 hours, the number of deaths due to COVID-19 stands at 7,745, as per government data.

Here are the numbers as of 10 am on June 10:

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.
