India to surpass US Covid-19 death toll 'within weeks'

India is expected within weeks to overtake the United States for having the largest number of coronavirus cases. The government however is unlikely to reimpose restrictions, after its earlier lockdown devastated the economy and pushed millions out of work. Covid-19 has now killed more than one million people around the world, a number UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has described as an agonising milestone.
