Biggest 1-Day Jump Of 8,380 Coronavirus Patients Takes Total To 1.8 Lakh


The number of deaths linked to COVID-19 have crossed the 5,000-mark.

New Delhi:

India recorded the biggest single-day jump in the number of coronavirus cases with 8,380 new patients in the last 24 hours, which brings the total to 1,82,143 cases. The number of deaths crossed the 5,000-mark after 193 deaths were registered on Saturday, according to Union Health Ministry.

This is the first time that the number of coronavirus cases in India crossed the 8,000-mark in a single day. The country –  ninth worst hit country due to the pandemic –  has been registering record spikes for the last three days. 

The sharp rise comes as India opens up in a phased-manner in June after nearly two months of lockdown to tackle the pandemic.
