Maharashtra is the state, province, or region worst affected by Covid-19 in the world. The western Indian state, the most industrialised in the country, home to India’s commercial capital Mumbai, saw 943,772 cases of the coronavirus disease till Tuesday night, according to the HT dashboard. If it were a country, Maharashtra would be at No 5 in terms of the number of Covid-19 cases.
But it isn’t the sole Indian state in a listing of the top provinces by cases. Andhra Pradesh, with 517,094 comes in at #6; Tamil Nadu, with 474,940 cases at #7, and Karnataka, with 412,190 cases at #9. Uttar Pradesh, with 278,473 cases is just outside the top 10, at number 11.
