India's COVID-19 cases per lakh people are one of the lowest in the world despite its high population density, and the recovery rate has now reached almost 56 percent, the Union Health Ministry said on 22nd June 2020.

For every one lakh population, there are 30.04 coronavirus cases in India, while the global average is over three times at 114.67, the ministry said, referring to the WHO Situation Report 153, dated June 21.

"This low figure is thus a testimony to the graded, pre-emptive and pro-active approach the Government of India along with the states and UTs took for prevention, containment and management of COVID-19," the ministry said in a statement.

Citing the WHO Situation Report, the ministry said the US has 671.24 cases per lakh population, while Germany, Spain, Brazil, and the UK have 583.88, 526.22, 489.42, and 448.86 cases per lakh population, respectively.

It said Russia has 400.82 cases per lakh people, while Italy, Canada, Iran, and Turkey have 393.52, 268.98, 242.82, and 223.53, respectively.
