India Surpasses 200,000 COVID-19 Deaths

NEW DELHI — The COVID-19 death toll in India has topped 200,000 during a surge in the pandemic.

The health ministry on Wednesday reported 3,293 deaths in the last 24 hours, bringing India’s total deaths to 201,187.

The country also reported 362,757 new infections, a global record, which raised the overall total past 17.9 million cases.

India has the fourth most deaths, behind the United States, Brazil and Mexico. The current surge is sending its health systems toward collapse. Hospitalizations and deaths have reached record highs.

Patients are dying because hospitals’ oxygen supplies have run out. Fires at overwhelmed crematoriums are lighting up night skies.
