first_imgMigrant workers crowd outside a train station in Mumbai, India to board trains to their home state, Bihar, on May 20, 2020. Migrant workers are becoming infected with the coronavirus at an alarmingly high rate, leading to fresh outbreaks in villages across northern India. THE NEW YORK TIMES India’s death toll from the pandemic now stands at 50,921, an increase of 941 from the previous day, according to the health ministry’s website. Despite the rising death toll, the health ministry tweeted on Sunday that India’s virus mortality rate was “one of the lowest globally” at below two percent. NEW DLEHI – India’s death toll from the coronavirus hit 50,000 on Monday, with more than 900 new fatalities reported in 24 hours, health ministry data showed. The world’s second-most populated country, home to some of the world’s biggest cities and largest slums, is already the third-most infected nation behind the US and Brazil. The country last week overtook Britain with the world’s fourth-highest number of deaths, behind the United States, Brazil and Mexico, and has recorded 2.6 million infections. Many experts however say the real numbers may be far higher due to low levels of testing and because deaths are often not properly recorded in India’s chronically under-funded health system. Experts say India needs to ramp up testing further to get the virus under control as it spreads to rural and regional areas where healthcare systems are particularly fragile or not easily accessible. On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said trials and tests on three potential vaccine candidates were being carried out in India and that his government was preparing to produce huge numbers of doses if any are found to be viable.

first_imgSOUTHAMPTON, England, (Reuters) – Pakistan middle-order batsman Mohammad Rizwan hit a defiant half century on a difficult batting pitch to guide his side past the 200-mark in their first innings and frustrate England in the second test yesterday. Having resumed on 126-5 overnight, Pakistan, batting first, reached 223-9 when bad light forced the second day’s play to finish early with Rizwan, who was dropped by Jos Buttler on 14, on 60 and Naseem Shah on one. With Pakistan’s first innings stretching into a third day and more rain forecast, a draw is already beginning to look the most likely result. England lead 1-0 in the three-match series.“We are a bit disappointed we have not bowled Pakistan out – they have played really nicely at times and we have missed a few chances and maybe not been as ruthless with the ball as we could have been,” said England bowler Stuart Broad.After the start of play was delayed by 90 minutes by bad light, Babar Azam and Rizwan managed to negotiate a one-hour session before lunch without further loss. Azam went shortly after lunch for 47 when he was victim to an excellent delivery from Broad which straightened just enough to shave the outside edge.A key moment followed when Buttler, diving high to his left, dropped a difficult chance offered by Rizwan.Buttler, however, made no mistake when Yasir Shah nicked James Anderson’s outswinger to him and was out for five as the England bowler claimed his 593rd test wicket. Shaheen Afridi followed when he was naively run out for a 19-ball duck, setting off from the non-striker’s end and getting caught out of his ground as Dom Sibley scored a direct hit.That left Pakistan on 176-8 which prompted Rizwan to adopt a more aggressive approach, hitting two fours off the same Sam Curran over before driving Chris Woakes to the extra-cover boundary for four more.England began to show signs of frustration and Pakistan reached 200 thanks to a gift from Woakes who conceded four byes from a loose delivery down the legside, before Rizwan completed his 50 off 104 balls. Mohammad Abbas was lbw to Broad for two after the tea break before bad light stopped play again.last_img read more
