The past few days have not been all that great for India as we have now climbed up to 13th place in the World, on the list of countries most affected by the COVID-19 Novel Corona Virus! The numbers have been increasing steeply with some places like Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal witnessing almost doubling of the numbers, on a daily basis! Many regions across the country have been marked as containment zones and have been shut off from the outside world, to prevent the spread of the deadly Corona Virus! However, on the other hand, there is some great news from some parts of India! A latest report states that about 136 districts in the country have not had even a single COVID-19 positive case, in the past 21-28 days!

Great News! No fresh COVID-19 cases in 136 Indian districts in last 21-28 days!
