Seventy-five people have died across India after being infected with novel coronavirus, the Health Ministry said on Saturday, as the country recorded 525 fresh cases and 13 deaths in the last 24 hours.
This takes the total number of COVID-19 cases in the country to 3,072. The spike in cases has been linked to a religious gathering held by the Tablighi Jamaat in Delhi last month, with nearly 30 per cent of all known COVID-19 patients in the country connected to the controversial event.
Worldwide, the COVID-19 virus has infected more than 1 million people and killed over 50,000 others.(NDTV)
