    India has recorded a dramatic jump to more than 400,000 Covid-19 cases – its biggest ever daily case count, as the second coronavirus wave hits India.

    According to the Ministry of Health, India recorded 401,993 new daily infections, as well as 3,523 deaths in the past 24 hours.

    Eighteen people, including 12 patients, died in the state of Gujarat when an oxygen cylinder on an intensive care unit caught fire.

    The latest grim figures come as all adults in India are now eligible to be vaccinated.

    However several states, including Maharashtra, are reporting shortages of coronavirus vaccine vials which has stopped them from vaccinating more people.

    India had previously focused on vaccinating frontline workers and adults over the age of 45.
