Asia Today: India has record high of 69,000 new infections

NEW DELHI (AP) — India counted another record number of new coronavirus infections Thursday as it ramped up testing to more than 900,000 a day.

The 69,652 new cases pushed India’s total past 2.8 million, of which 2 million have recovered, the Health Ministry said.

The country also recorded 977 coronavirus fatalities in the past 24 hours, raising its total deaths to 53,866, the ministry said.

COVID-19 illnesses and deaths are thought to be far higher around the world due to limited testing and other factors.

India has conducted 3 million tests for the virus, but experts have urged increasing its testing capacity greatly, since it has the world’s second-highest population of 1.4 billion people.

Looking at the crowds in Indian cities, these results do not surprise me.
