India’s current Covid wave has taken on frightening proportions, driven in part by a new variant of the virus which has double mutations. Earlier this week, India overtook Brazil as the country with the second-highest number of cases in the world, behind the USA.
Experts are concerned that given the low testing rate, India possibly has higher number of cases than either US or Brazil. The country reported more than 300,000 new cases daily for nine days in a row, hitting another global record of 386,452 on Friday. Real numbers could be much higher, with crematoriums and graveyards both running out of space across the country.
