Maharashtra is the most affected state in the country, which recorded 23,577 cases in 24 hours. The state also registered the highest number of deaths with 380 fatalities. Delhi saw a record surge with over 4,000 cases on Wednesday. This comes even as Delhi Metro services are being expanded across several lines. After a month-long decline in July, Delhi is again seeing a surge in cases. Experts maintain that it is important to focus on wearing masks and washing hands regularly to ensure cases don’t spiral out of control due to Metro services.

The Union Health Ministry official informed that the recovery rate in the country is 77.7% with the death rate dropping to 1.6%. As per government data, 11.29 lakh samples were tested in the last 24 hours.
