The spike came after India eased restrictions, allowing malls, restaurants, hotels and places of worship to be re-opened.

In its daily update, the health ministry said the total number of infections rose to 246,628. Over 8,000 cases are being recorded on a daily basis for several days now.

However, experts warned that the second-most populous country with 1.3 billion inhabitants, had yet to see the peak of the pandemic.
