Virus: India records around 315,000 new cases in 24 hours, a world record

The second pandemic wave, which is specifically attributed to the “double mutation” of the virus and to the maintenance of mass ceremonies that favor contamination, once again exposed the chronic state of the Indian health system.

The Ministry of Health reported 314,835 new pollutions on Thursday, a daily report that no country in the world had previously recorded. This brings the total number of officially recorded cases in India, which is the second most affected country by the epidemic, to 15.9 million.

A total of 2,074 deaths were recorded in 24 hours in India, causing the official toll of the epidemic to be around 185 million deaths. However, the number of cases and deaths per capita is much lower in India than in many other countries.

Acknowledging that India and its 1.3 billion inhabitants were fighting “a big fight once again”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked his compatriot in a television address on Tuesday evening to do more on the face of the coronovirus .

Many hospitals and clinics in the capital have made a desperate appeal to the central government to provide immediate oxygen supply to feed hundreds of patients on ventilators.
