NO LET UP IN CASES: 60,975 CASES IN LAST 24 HOURS

A fresh surge of 60,975 new infections registered in the last 24 hours has taken India’s coronavirus tally to 31,67,323, the Union Health Ministry said this morning. The number of fatalities linked to the outbreak rose to 58,390 after 848 deaths were recorded in the last 24 hours.

India has been reporting the highest number of daily Covid cases in the world since August 4, the World Health Organization data shows. The country has the third highest number of cases in the world after the United States – the epicentre of the pandemic – and Brazil.

In the last 24 hours, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh recorded the highest number of new cases in India. These states also reported the highest number of deaths linked to Covid since yesterday.

WHO

The five states have logged the highest number of cases since the beginning of the pandemic. Delhi, which was the second-worst hit by the outbreak in June, now has the sixth highest number of cases in the country.

Meanwhile, the phase 2 human clinical trial of the Oxford COVID-19 vaccine candidate in the country by Pune-based Serum Institute of India (SII) is set to begin today. In another development, Karnataka has relaxed travel norms and travelers will no longer be required to be quarantined.

The PM CARES Fund Trust will finance two 500-bed COVID-19 makeshift hospitals in Bihar, the Prime Minister’s Office said on Monday, adding that this will go a long way in improving the COVID care in the state.
