India today logged over 3.23 lakh new Covid cases, 8.4% less than yesterday, and 2,771 deaths in the last 24 hours. Several nations, including the US, have pledged help as India grapples with severe shortage of oxygen supply and essential medicines.

Here are the top 10 updates on coronavirus in India:

  1. This is the sixth straight day that over three lakh cases have been recorded in India. The fresh Covid figure takes the country’s total caseload to over 1.76 crore. Monday’s deaths have taken the total fatalities to 1,97,894.

  5. Delhi recorded the highest single-day rise on Monday in its COVID-19 death count with 380 more people dying due to the infection. The capital recorded 20,201 cases in the last 24 hours.
