Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - NEW DELHI — India hit the grim milestone of 200,000 COVID-19 deaths on Tuesday as the country also logged in another single-day high of new cases and virus-related fatalities.

The South Asian country reported 3,285 deaths and 3,62,757 new cases during the last 24 hours on Tuesday night with Maharashtra topping the tally on both counts. The western Indian state recorded 66,358 new infections and reported 895 deaths.

Maharashtra also led the death tally across the country with 66,179 fatalities, followed by Delhi (15,009) Karnataka (14,807), Tamil Nadu (13,728), Uttar Pradesh (11,678), and West Bengal (11,082).

India is placed third in the global death tally behind the United States and Brazil.

On Monday, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the head of the World Health Organization, called the situation in India “beyond heartbreaking.” He warned that many countries in the world “are still experiencing intense transmission,” with more new cases globally in the past week than in the first five months of the pandemic.

Medical facilities in India, especially in the larger cities, have been under strain from the flood of patients as the number of cases skyrocketed in the past few weeks under the pressure of new, more virulent variants and relaxed restrictions. Hospitals in some cities have stopped admitting patients amid a scramble for oxygen, ventilators, and medicines. In some hospitals, patients have died after limited oxygen supplies ran out. — Agencies
