India on Saturday reported 86,432 more cases of COVID-19, a daily world record, data from the Federal Ministry of Health indicate. Infections have increased nationwide, including in the capital New Delhi and the large states of Maharashtra and Karnataka. The number of deaths increased by more than 1,000 to 69,561.

India has logged the world’s largest daily coronavirus caseload for almost a month, as its government pushes the opening up of businesses to revive a sharply contracting economy. The jump to more than 4 mln cases comes only 13 days after India reached 3 mln cases, accelerating sharply from the more than 100 days it took to increase by the previous 1 mln.
