According to the official data showed by the Indian Health Ministry the country recorded more than 400,000 new cases of coronavirus in 24 hours for the first time, the first country to do so in the COVID-19 pandemic.
As per to details 401,993 new COVID-19 infections were registered taking the total caseload to 19.1 million, There were 3,523 people lost their lives bringing the toll to 211,853.
The real numbers are much higher as many experts suspect that because of insufficient testing and inaccurate recording of cause of death.
Indian authorities lowered their guard in the early part of the year after infections fell below 10,000 per day, lifting restrictions on most activity, Mass religious gatherings such as the Kumbh Mela, attracting millions of Hindu pilgrims, and political rallies were the main reason to continue even when COVID-19 cases numbers began rising sharply in late March.
