India set a new world record for daily infections for the third day in a row on Saturday, with the country averaging more than 331,000 new cases over the three-day span. On Saturday, India reported 2,624 Covid-related deaths, a new high for a single 24-hour period.
Whereas the total death toll in India is already shocking, according to the analysts interviewed by the Times, politicians and hospital administrators may be motivated to "undercount or miss" large numbers of deaths, while bereaved families may be reluctant to alert officials of Covid-related deaths.
Medical authorities around the world are concerned that a new coronavirus type known as the "double mutant," B.1.617, is to blame for the tragedy in India.
994,351 total, that's how many Covid-19 infections India's Ministry of Health and Welfare has recorded in the last three days. No country had ever registered more than 300,000 new cases in a single day prior to Thursday.
