India reported another 3,800 coronavirus deaths on Thursday — just 24 hours after setting a new single-day record high for the pandemic, with over 4,500 COVID deaths. India’s massive second wave appears to have crested, but the nation is still reporting more than a quarter-million cases per day. In recent days, hundreds more corpses of COVID-19 victims have been discovered floating in the Ganges River, adding to evidence that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government is concealing the true toll from its failed response to the crisis. India’s official death toll now stands at over 287,000, though public health experts say the real number could be up to five times higher.
