According to health ministry figures, the COVID-19 death toll in the country increased by 1,258, with 511 deaths recorded from the state of Maharashtra.

New variations are especially concerning in India, where more than half of the population is unvaccinated. Less than 6% of India’s 950 million adult population has taken two doses.

According to the health ministry, at least 20 cases have been connected to the Delta variation, which India identified as a variant of concern last week.

The official death toll in India is currently 395,751, but specialists and global health organizations like as the World Health Organization believe the figure is far higher. 29.25 million of the 35.51 million individuals infected have recovered.
