India overtakes Brazil to become world’s second worst hit country by COVID-19

As coronavirus cases surge in India, the country has now become the second worst hit with the pandemic, displacing Brazil on Monday. With its nationwide tally of 4.2 million exceeded only by the US figure of 6.2 million, India is adding more cases each day than any other country this year since the outbreak of the pandemic.

Experts say there is no sign of a peak as cases surge in the world’s second most populous country, both in major cities, such as New Delhi and the financial hub of Mumbai, and rural areas that have limited access to health services.
