India has topped 23 million COVID-19 cases as the nation reported a record 4,200 fatalities today, bringing its total official death toll to over a quarter of a million. As India continues to grapple with its devastating second wave, the Red Cross is warning coronavirus cases are “exploding” across the world, and in particular throughout Asia and the Pacific.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization says the Indian coronavirus variant has now spread to almost 50 countries, with Britain reporting the highest number of cases related to the variant.
