Coronavirus: India's Covid-19 cases surge past one million - BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
India added a record number of Covid-19 cases - nearly 35,000 - in the last 24 hours, breaching the one million mark.

It has the world's third-largest case load, after the US and Brazil - the only three countries so far to record more than a million coronavirus cases.

India's active cases account for about a third of its total tally as it has been reporting a high recovery rate and a low death rate from the virus.

But deaths have been rising. At 25,602, they are eighth-highest in the world.

India's number of cases has been on the rise - with nearly record daily surges - in recent weeks. It overtook Russia earlier this month to occupy the third spot for the highest number of coronavirus cases globally.
