India reported 314,835 new COVID-19 infections on Thursday, the highest one-day total posted by any nation during the year-long global pandemic. The devastating second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in the world’s second most populous country has brought its health system to the brink of collapse even in its biggest cities.
