The world’s highest death rate in one day was recorded after the state of Bihar revised data to record deaths at home or in private hospitals.
India reported the highest death rate from COVID-19 in a single day – 6148 deaths – after one eastern state revised its numbers to include people who have died from illness at home or in private hospitals.
The health department of Bihar, one of the poorest states in India, on Wednesday revised the total COVID death toll to over 9,400 from 5,400.
On February 12, 5444 deaths from COVID-19 were recorded in the United States.
The total number of COVID cases in India now stands at nearly 29.2 million, according to the Ministry of Health, after rising 94,052 in the last 24 hours to a total of 359,676 deaths.
The country has fewer than 100,000 new COVID cases every day for three consecutive days. According to the ministry, the number of active cases is around 1.17 million.
Bihar revisited its losses after the regional High Court asked for an audit of victims during the second wave of coronavirus in April and May.
The court ruling followed allegations that the state government was hiding the extent of infections and deaths.
The death check showed that while 1,600 people died from COVID in Bihar between March 2020 and March 2021, the number of deaths from April to June 7 this year was a staggering 7,775, about six times the number, according to the Indian NDTV.
The state capital, Patna, bore the brunt of the outbreak, according to media reports, with a total of 2,303 deaths.
The Ministry of Health said that 242.7 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered nationwide, including 3.4 million in the past 24 hours.
India has the second largest number of coronavirus cases in the world after the United States. It ranks third after the United States and Brazil in the number of deaths from COVID.
