COVID-19: Biggest Single-Day Spike In India, Cases
As India enters the last week of Lockdown 3.0, a record increase in the number of Coronavirus cases has been registered in the country. Over the last 24 hours, the country witnessed a record 4,213 cases and 97 deaths, bringing the total to 67,152 and death toll at 2,206.

The rapid rise in COVID-19 cases has taken the world by shock. The World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic on March 11 and now the pandemic has entered its third month. So far, no concrete policy has been formulated to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The WHO has also warned that if the infection does not stop, crores of people in African countries will fall prey to it.

Global COVID-19 cases stand at over 4.1 million, death toll crosses 283,000, according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University, US.

The first case of coronavirus was reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December last year, and now the country has dropped out of the list of 10 COVID-19 affected countries.

The US tops the list of 10 most affected countries, followed by Spain, Britain, Italy, Russia, France, Germany, Brazil, Turkey and Iran. There are about 3 million cases in these 10 countries.

Meanwhile, the WHO rejected a report that claimed a conversation took place between the Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and Chinese President Xi Jinping on January 21.

“Dr Tedros and President Xi did not speak on January  21 and they have never spoken by phone. Such inaccurate reports distract and detract from WHO’s and the world’s efforts to end the COVID-19 pandemic,” the WHO statement read.
