India’s Covid-19 caseload is likely to cross the 7.5 million mark on Monday as the country recorded 61,871 new infections between Saturday and Sunday which took its tally to 7,494,551 which is the second-highest in the world in the United States. However, in some good news, a govt panel on Sunday said India’s Covid-19 peak is over. The panel also warned that the country could see a surge of 2.6 million cases in the next month due to the upcoming festive season, if Covid-19 protocols are not followed strictly. Also on Monday, the Mumbai Metro is set to resume operations after six months after it was shut down in March due to the nationwide lockdown. The global coronavirus caseload, meanwhile, has crossed the 40 million mark, according to worldometers. While Europe is experiencing a second wave of Covid-19 cases, the US, India and Brazil remain the three worst-hit nations, followed by Russia and Argentina.
