India on Sunday recorded 3,689 COVID-19 deaths, its highest daily toll since the pandemic began.

The record death count came as the country hit 392,488 new cases in the previous 24 hours, bringing its total to 19.56 million.

COVID-19 has killed at least 215,542 people with the latest outbreak overwhelming morgues and crematoriums.

But experts say the toll is likely an undercount, as coronavirus testing is limited.

The country has recorded more than 300,000 cases for 10 days, further straining its healthcare system.

People have been forced to line up at hospitals for treatment, while supply shortages have seen families scramble to secure oxygen for sick loves ones.

The government has been using the country’s air force and the navy to race oxygen tankers to the hardest-hit regions.
