  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “India sees over 360,000 COVID cases in day in global record” – below is their description.

    It’s a day of grim milestones in India. Coronavirus infections in India have spiralled to more than 360,000 new cases in the past day – a global record. And it’s led to more than 3,300 recorded deaths.

    That takes India’s death toll past 200,000.

    However, many critics say the official numbers for both deaths and infections are far below the reality.

    Al Jazeera’s Elizabeth Puranam has this report from New Delhi.
