India is surpassing to become the world's new coronavirus epicenter.

Although COVID-19 data shows that India recorded the highest cases on July 31, but it has a 74.28 percent recovery rate compared to other countries.

COVID-19 cases have been rising across the globe, with over 22,891,700 people infected by the disease. The United States, Brazil, India, and Russia are some of the world's worst-affected countries. The experts predicted that India would pass Brazil and, ultimately, the U.S. to have the worst outbreak globally, becoming the world's new coronavirus epicenter while comparing the highest cases on July 31.

However, when it comes to the number of active cases, India stands at the third spot in COVID-19, and its recovery rate is also good at 74.28 percent. Moreover, based on one day's figure, it is incorrect to say it would become the epicenter.

Currently, the U.S. is leading with more than 2 million active cases, followed by Brazil and India.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
