Indian temple reports huge COVID-19 outbreak as cases surge

A well-known Hindu temple in India has seen more than 700 cases of COVID-19 among its staff in the past two months, a temple official said on Monday (Aug 10), as cases in the country surged past 2.2 million. India reported a near-record 62,064 new cases of the virus in the past 24 hours, according to federal health data released on Monday, taking its total number of cases to more than 2.2 million. India has fewer cases than only the United States and Brazil, though it has reported a relatively low number of deaths, at fewer than 45,000, although epidemiologists say the peak of its outbreak could be months away. Cases in India have been spreading from urban areas to smaller towns and the countryside, where health infrastructure is already over-burdened.
