India has broken the grave record for the highest reported new COVID-19 case in one country, tallying 312,731 cases in a 24-hour period.
This is the highest daily rise in a single country in one day. Following a staggering increase in cases, India has been added to the UK ‘red list’, while Pakistan, the US, New Zealand, Hong Kong and more have imposed restrictions on the country.

40% of new COVID infections in the world are from India, according to the New York Times and more than 1,300 people have died of COVID every day in the last week.
