India’s Covid-19 death toll surpasses China’s

More people have now died with Covid-19 in India than China, according to latest figures from India’s health ministry.

The number of deaths has increased to 4,706  – in comparison, China has confirmed 4,638.

With more than 160,000 total infections, India’s cases surpassed China’s a few weeks ago.

While India’s fourth stage of lockdown is close to an end, it remains unclear what to expect going forward.

Some experts say the outbreak hasn’t peaked, and will do so only in June or July.
