India death toll rises to fifth-highest

Nearly 800 deaths were reported from India on Thursday, taking the total to more than 35,500, and surpassing Italy to become the country with the fifth-highest number of fatalities.

Another new record of daily infections – over 54,000 – has meant that the infections in India have crossed 1.6 million, the third highest anywhere in the world.

India locked down in late March and started to open up in June in phases. On Wednesday, the home ministry announced a new round of «unlock» measures, including re-opening gyms from 5 August and hotels.

On Friday, the capital Delhi said it would start to reopen hotels – but keep gyms closed for now.
