At least 50 doctors have lost their lives while battling with the ravaging coronavirus in a single day.
This is coming as the country struggles with a punishing second wave of infections and deaths.
According to the Indian Medical Association (IMA) 244 doctors had lost their lives to Covid-19 so far this year, with 50 dying on Sunday.
The IMA said that many doctors are yet to be vaccinated and are made increasingly vulnerable to catching the virus due to overwork.
The figures, published on Tuesday, came as India reported a record 4,329 fatalities in the last 24 hours.
Some 23,533 new cases were registered, which brings total number of infections recorded since the pandemic to more than 25million.
While the number of new daily infections remains high, Tuesday’s figures followed a trend of falling cases after infections dipped below 300,000 for the first time in weeks a day earlier.
Active cases decreased by more than 165,000 on Tuesday – the biggest dip in weeks. But deaths have continued to rise and hospitals are still swamped by patients.
India has recorded nearly 280,000 virus deaths since the pandemic began last spring. Both the number of deaths and total reported cases are thought to be vast undercounts.
