Telegraph, 05 May 2021
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said on Tuesday (May 4) the meeting of G7 foreign ministers was a "good opportunity" to engage with India, where coronavirus cases have surpassed 20 million.

With 3.45 million active cases, India recorded 357,229 new infections over the last 24 hours, while deaths rose by 3,449 to 222,408, health ministry data showed.

With hospitals running out of beds and oxygen and morgues and crematoria overflowing, experts say the actual numbers could be five to 10 times higher.

According to a Reuters tally, total infections were more than 20.2 million, second only to the United States.
