India recorded its biggest surge in the number of coronavirus cases in 24 hours for the second consecutive day with 19,906 new patients, taking the total to 5,28,859 infections, the Union Health Ministry said Sunday morning. The country also witnessed 410 COVID-19-related deaths during the period, taking the total number of casualties due to the virus to 16,095. 

Further, there are 2,03,051 active cases and all are under medical supervision. While there are 3,09,713 cured/discharged/migrated patients. The death toll has risen up to 16,095 in the country with 410 persons succumbing to the lethal infection in the last 24 hours.

India is the fourth worst-hit country in the world by the pandemic after the United States, Brazil and Russia. Delhi, the worst-affected city in the country, has over 80,000 infections now. The total number of deaths in the national capital has mounted to 2,558 as the city-state grapples with the shortage of hospital beds. 

“As some people could not get beds due to the shortage, the death count started rising,” chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said.

As on June 28, the COVID related health infrastructure has been strengthened with the availability of 1,055 dedicated COVID Hospitals with 1,77,529 isolation beds, 23,168 ICU beds and 78,060 oxygen supported beds, it said.
