The pandemic of Coronavirus, also known as COVID 19, has affected our lives in more ways we could have imagined. This deadly health scare has brought the life to a standstill across the world and this battle isn’t going to subside anytime soon. It goes without saying that India’s situation is no different than the rest of the world and Prime Minister Narendra Modi led government is making efforts to curtail the spread of COVID 19. However, despite all the efforts, the coronavirus cases are increasing rapidly in India with over 10 thousand people affected by this highly transmissible virus.

Meanwhile, over 350 people have also lost their lives to COVID 19 across the nation. So far, the authorities have recorded several hotspots in India depending upon the states which have been majorly affected by this pandemic. As of now, Maharashtra, Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and Telangana are the worst affected states of India, which have reported the maximum number of COVID 19 cases so far. And while this virus has been spread across 32 states and Union Territories in India, Sikkim seems to be unfazed by coronavirus outbreak in the country.

As per the recent list released by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Sikkim is the only Indian state with no coronavirus cases so far. On the other hand, Lakshadweep and Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu are the only two Union Territories which hasn’t recorded any COVID 19 case. Meanwhile, states like Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh have registered one case each of coronavirus as of now.
