Coronavirus: India sees biggest one-day jump in cases

India reported a record of 9,996 new coronavirus cases over the past 24 hours with health services in the worst-hit cities of Mumbai, New Delhi and Chennai getting swamped by the rising infections.

The Health Ministry reported an increase of 357 deaths. India’s tally of positive cases has reached 286,579 so far, the fifth highest in the world, and 8,102 deaths.

Most Indian states have lifted lockdown restrictions, with train services partially restored and shops and manufacturing reopened. Subways, hotels and schools remain shuttered nationwide.
