India’s coronavirus cases jump by another 96K

NEW DELHI (AP) — India’s coronavirus cases jumped by another 96,424 infections in the past 24 hours, showing little sign of levelling.

The Health Ministry yesterday raised the nation’s total past 5.21 million, 0.37 per cent of its nearly 1.4 billion people. It said 1,174 more people died in the past 24 hours, for a total of 84,372 fatalities. Experts said India’s death toll may be a significant undercount.

India is expected to have the highest national total of confirmed cases within weeks, surpassing the United States (US).
