India coronavirus cases pass 8 lakh with record daily jump

India’s coronavirus cases have crossed 800,000 with the biggest spike of 27,114 cases in the past 24 hours, causing nearly a dozen states to impose a partial lockdown in high-risk areas.

The new confirmed cases took the total cases to 820,916.

The Health Ministry on Saturday also reported another 519 deaths from the virus infection, taking the death toll 22,123.

A surge in infections saw the cases jumping from 600,000 to more than 800,000 in nine days.

The ministry said the recovery rate was continuing to improve at more than 62percent.

Eight of India’s 28 states, including the worst-hit Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and New Delhi, account for nearly 90percent of all infections.

The most populous state of Uttar Pradesh, with nearly 230 million people, imposed a weekend lockdown while several others announced restrictions in districts reporting major spikes.
