The number of new fatalities stood at 839, the most deaths in more than five months, taking the toll to 169,275

India reported a record 1,52,879 new Covid-19 cases, health ministry data showed on Sunday, as a second-wave of infections continued to surge and overwhelm hospitals in parts of the country.

The number of new fatalities stood at 839, the most deaths in more than five months, taking the toll to 169,275.

India’s tally of more than 13.35 million cases is the third-highest globally, behind only Brazil and the United States.

On Saturday, India's most coronavirus-hit state Maharashtra went into a weekend lockdown as the country battles exploding infection numbers and vaccine shortages, adds AFP.

In megacity Mumbai, 25 out of 71 private hospitals administering jabs ran out of supplies Thursday, city authorities said.
