India records highest daily virus tally
Global coronavirus infections soared past 25 million on Sunday as countries around the world further tightened restrictions to try to stop the rampaging pandemic.
At least 25,029,250 people have been infected with the respiratory disease, of whom 842,915 have died.
Nearly 40 percent of all reported Covid-19 cases are in the United States and Brazil, the two worst-hit countries.
A million additional cases have been detected globally roughly every four days since mid-July, according to an AFP tally, with India on Sunday setting the record for the highest single-day rise in cases with 78,761.
The surge in India, home to 1.3 billion people, came as the government further eased lockdown restrictions on the weekend to help ease pressure on the reeling economy.
