The number of cases in India, which has a population of nearly 1.4 billion people, has nearly doubled in the last three months while the death rate has surpassed 220,000.

In the last 24 hours, there has been 357,229 cases reported with another 3,449 deaths.

The Indian government has stated that infection rates are decreasing, although another daily global record for Covid-19 cases was reported on Saturday.
