India’s COVID-19 death toll surpasses 300,000

India's coronavirus death toll crossed 300,000 as the country recorded more than 4,400 fatalities in the last 24 hours, according to Health Ministry figures released Monday.

According to the ministry, there were 4,454 new deaths, taking the total to 303,720.

India had seen an exponential rise in cases, with the daily number surpassing 400,000. While there has been a decline in daily cases, this has not been the case for daily virus-linked deaths.

On Monday, daily cases fell to 222,315, pushing the country’s total to 26.75 million, the data showed.

According to the daily figures, the worst-hit capital of New Delhi has also seen a significant decline in new cases, but rural areas of the country have been seeing increases in infections.

What is now worrying doctors is an increase in cases of the deadly fungal infection mucormycosis. According to government figures, there are nearly 9,000 cases in the country.
