412,262 fresh Covid-19 cases take India’s tally to over 21 million

New Delhi, May 06:

A day after the government said a third wave of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) was inevitable in India, the country recorded 412,262 fresh cases and 3,980 new deaths due to the virus. With this, the India’s total infection tally went up to 21,077,410 and its death toll was pushed to 230,168, according to the Union health ministry dashboard.

The country, reeling under a highly infectious second wave, had registered over 300,000 cases in 24 hours for over two weeks before crossing the 4-lakh mark on Thursday. The daily death toll too, which crossed 3,000 on April 28, has stayed over the mark for over a week. 

According to experts, the country should continue following the coronavirus-appropriate behaviour such as observing social distancing and wearing masks in face of the approaching third wave as these measures will help guard us against all variants.
