(BBC) – India has recorded its highest daily coronavirus death toll since the pandemic began – a day after it became the first country to register more than 400,000 new cases.
The outcomes are being watched for signs of how the pandemic has affected support for Mr Modi and his Hindu nationalist party, the BJP. He has been criticised for allowing rallies to take place during polling in March and April.
What’s the latest?
The country’s previous highest daily death toll, also reported this week, was 3,645.
Delhi High Court has now declared it will start punishing officials if life-saving supplies don’t make it to hospitals.
