The death toll from the coronavirus pandemic has climbed to 2,085,000 people in the country.
This is a significant rise from the 1,726,000 who died last year.
However, the latest numbers do not take into account deaths from other diseases that are not included in the death toll, such as diarrhoea, pneumonia and coronaviruses.
The data is based on data collected from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MHFW) from April 9 to May 23, 2017.
