India recorded its biggest daily increase in Covid-19 cases today, with nearly 96,000 fresh cases in the last 24 hours bringing the total number to date to 4.4 million.

Health ministry figures showed that 95,735 new cases and 1,172 deaths were recorded in the country, according to Anadolu Agency.

This is the first time India has experienced such a huge increase in a single day, although it recently overtook Brazil to become the second-worst country to be hit by the virus.

Total Covid-19-related deaths have now reached 75,062.

The western state of Maharashtra is leading the pandemic figures in India, with officials saying that for the first time in over three months, coronavirus numbers in the state “have now started to grow at a faster rate than the country as a whole”.

Over one million tests were done across the country yesterday.

Experts in the country say that by the end of September, India may even surpass the US – the worst-affected country worldwide – in terms of severity of the pandemic.
