Coronavirus infections in the US are on the decline, but experts say the new reality may be ‘rolling hot spots’
India recorded 75,760 new coronavirus infections on Wednesday — the country’s highest one-day jump in cases since the pandemic began, according to the Health Ministry.
That raises the country’s total number of infections to 3.31 million. Of those, more than 2.5 million have recovered, leaving over 725,000 active cases, according to the ministry.
In India, not all patients require a test to be considered recovered. Patients with mild and moderate symptoms are considered no longer active after 10 days of symptom onset if they meet certain conditions, and a test to confirm that they no longer have the virus is not required. However, severe cases can only be discharged after one negative coronavirus test.
The death toll stands at 60,472, according to the ministry.
