A record single-day jump of 8,380 new patients in the last 24 hours has taken India's coronavirus tally to nearly 1.82 lakh cases, the Union Health Ministry said this morning. The number of total deaths linked to the highly infectious illness crossed the 5,000-mark after 193 patients died in 24 hours, according to official data. This is the first time that the number of coronavirus cases in India crossed the 8,000-mark in a single day. The country - ninth worst hit due to the pandemic - has been registering record spikes for the last three days. The sharp rise in cases comes as India prepares to re-open in a phased-manner after nearly two months of lockdown to tackle the pandemic.
