India reported more than 40,000 new cases of the coronavirus on Monday, a record high for the country.

The 40,425 new cases raised India’s total to 1,118,043, including 27,497 deaths.

The ministry said late Sunday that India’s coronavirus fatality rate — currently at 2.49 percent — is “progressively falling” due to an effective containment strategy and aggressive testing.

With a surge in infections in the past few weeks, local governments in India have been ordering focused lockdowns in high-risk areas.
