BENGALURU: India reported on Thursday the highest single-day death toll from Covid-19 in the world, at 6,148, after a big eastern state revised its figures to account for people who succumbed to the disease at home or at private hospitals.

The health department of Bihar, one of India’s poorest states, revised its total Covid-19-related death toll on Wednesday to more than 9,400 from about 5,400.

The US had recorded 5,444 Covid-19 deaths on Feb 12.

India’s total Covid-19 caseload now stands at 29.2 million after rising by 94,052 in the past 24 hours, while total fatalities are at 359,676, according to data from the health ministry.
