On Wednesday India registered the highest single-day Covid-19 deaths at 507, with Maharashtra, Delhi and Tamil Nadu accounting for over 70 per cent of the deaths. 

18,653 new infections were reported, taking the total tally to 5,85,493, according to the Union health ministry data. 

With no slowing in the number of new cases being detected, state after state has been going in for an extension of the lockdown imposed first in March, all the way to July 31. 

 

With a viable vaccine nowhere in sight, it is anyone’s guess what awaits the country at the end of this road.
