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 5 stands at 2,36,657, with 9,887 cases in 24 hours. 

A total of 1,14,073 patients have recovered. With 294 deaths in 24 hours, the number of deaths due to COVID-19 stands at 6,642, as per government data.

Here are the numbers as of 9 am on June 6:

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 67,34,591 with 3,94,887 deaths (according to the map by Johns Hopkins) as on June 6.
