Bodies burned 24/7 as India suffers ‘mutant Covid-19 tsunami’ with record 330,000 cases daily.

INDIA is suffering a Covid mutant "tsunami" with bodies being burned 24 hours a day.

New virus super-mutants are ravaging the country, which is fighting the "world's worst" coronavirus outbreak.

On Friday, India reported more than 332,730 new infections - the highest daily sum of the pandemic anywhere in the world.

The figures raised India's case total to above 16 million since the pandemic began - the second-highest global total after the United States.

The country's overall coronavirus death toll stands at more than 186,000, according to Johns Hopkins University's count.

Bodies are being cremated through the night - contrary to Hindu custom which dictates no bodies be burned after sundown - to cope with the backlog.

The hold-up is so severe that families are having to wait hours in 35C heat before they can cremate their loved ones.

Funeral pyres have been sending smoke into the sky across the country non-stop.

Dr A Fathahudeen, a medic part of Kerala state’s Covid taskforce, said: "I said in February that Covid had not gone anywhere and a tsunami would hit us if urgent actions were not taken.

"Sadly, a tsunami has indeed hit us now."
