India supera a Brasil convirtiéndose en segundo con más casos de coronavirus

September 7, 2020 - El número creciente de casos de coronavirus de India han convertido al gigante asiático este lunes en el segundo país más afectado en el mundo luego de Estados Unidos, mientras sus esfuerzos para atajar el desastre económico por la pandemia se hacen más urgentes.

The 90,802 cases added in the past 24 hours pushed India’s total past Brazil with more than 4.2 million cases. India is now behind only the United States, where more than 6.2 million people have been infected, according to Johns Hopkins University.

India’s Health Ministry on Monday also reported 1,016 new deaths for a total of 71,642, the third-highest national toll.

The world’s second-most populous country with 1.4 billion people, India has been recording the world’s largest daily increases in coronavirus cases for almost a month. Despite over 2 million new cases in the past month and the virus spreading through the country’s smaller towns and villages, the Indian government has continued relaxing restrictions to try and resuscitate the economy, AP said.
