    Startling new evidence has emerged about the ravages of the pandemic in India. It was already a dire situation – the government reporting more than 415,000 have died. But most infectious disease experts agree the real toll is almost certainly much higher. Today, the Washington-based Center for Global Development released the most comprehensive study on the impact of the coronavirus in India. And, as feared, it says India’s death toll could be a staggering ten times higher than the official tally.

    That would mean 4.7 million additional deaths from the start of the pandemic until June this year. Just a few months ago India saw a devastating rise in infections, driven largely by the more infectious Delta variant.
