Indian COVID-19 situation turning from ‘bad to worse’

 India’s COVID-19 situation is turning from “bad to worse,” a senior government official said on Tuesday (March 30), as infections surge across several states.

“Remember if the cases are more, they will eventually overwhelm the system”, senior health official Vinod Kumar Paul told a news conference in New Delhi.

India recorded 56,211 new cases of coronavirus, a slight dip from the country’s record-breaking tallies over the last three days, data from the health ministry showed.

The country’s tally dipped below the 60,000 mark after three days, a Reuters tally showed, with its richest state, Maharashtra, accounting for more than 31,000 of the 56,211 cases reported in the last 24 hours.

Deaths in the last 24 hours stood at 271, and 162,114 have died so far in the pandemic, the health ministry said.V
