India has crossed another tragic threshold with officials saying that 200,000 people have died of Covid in the country as of Tuesday.
The country also saw more than 3,000 fatalities in one day for the first time, with officials saying that 3,286 people died on Tuesday.
A recent surge of infections has brought the country to its knees – two million infections were recorded in just one week.
India currently has the fourth highest death toll in the world, behind the US, Brazil and Mexico. Yet in none of the those countries is the crisis as urgent as it is presently in India.
