India’s total tally reached 16,960,172 while the death toll from the virus climbed to 192,311.

The unfolding crisis is most visceral in India’s overwhelmed graveyards and crematoriums, and in heartbreaking images of gasping patients dying on their way to hospitals due to lack of oxygen, reports AP.

Burial grounds in the capital New Delhi are running out of space. Bright, glowing funeral pyres light up the night sky in other badly hit cities.

Brazil's Covid-19 death toll on Sunday reached 390,797 after registering another 1,305 fatalities, the country's ministry of health reported.
