Researchers have found India’s death toll from COVID-19 may be 10 times higher than the country’s official tally. A new report by the Center for Global Development finds there have been as many as 4.7 million excess deaths in India since the start of the pandemic. India’s official death toll from the pandemic is 414,000. This comes as COVID cases surge across the globe. Indonesia reported over 1,300 deaths Monday — the highest single-day toll since the start of the pandemic. But public health experts fear the actual toll is far higher. In Japan, the number of COVID cases linked to the Olympic Games has now reached 71. The opening ceremony is set to take place on Friday in Tokyo, where COVID cases are at a six-month high.
