India’s cases of coronavirus crossed 191,000 today, overtaking France to become the seventh worst hit country in the world.

According to official statistics, a record 8,944 new cases were reported today taking India to seventh place in the list only behind the United States, Brazil, Russia, Spain, Britain and Italy. 

Criticism has grown in recent days that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s sudden lockdown of 1.3 billion Indians in March has failed to halt the spread of the disease while destroying the livelihoods of millions of people who depend on daily wages.
