4,205 Covid Deaths In India, Highest In 24 Hours; 3.48 Lakh Fresh Cases

India’s Covid death count passed the 2.5 lakh-mark this morning.

New Delhi:

India’s daily Covid death count hit a new grim record with 4,205 deaths in the last 24 hours; 3,48,421 fresh cases have been added to the active caseload amid the battle against the second wave, which has raised global concern. 

Hit hard by the second wave, nearly 90 per cent of the country is witnessing a high Covid positivity rate, the government said on Tuesday, stressing that 640 districts out of the 734 are above the national threshold level of 5 per cent positivity rate.

A variant of Covid-19 – B.1.617 – that has been linked to the explosion in cases in India has been found in 44 countries, the World Health Organization has said, days after labelling it as “a variant of concern”. The variant was first found in India in October.
