And landmark buildings including Capital Gate in Abu Dhabi were also involved.

India registers world’s highest number of daily Covid cases

India has recorded the highest number of daily Covid-19 cases in the world to date with India 352,000 new cases in the last 24 hours.

In total, India has registered nearly 16 million cases, second only in the world to America.

To date, India has announced over 185,000 deaths from Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic.

It’s also had an impressive vaccine drive. More than 130 million doses have been given to health workers, frontline staff and those above 45. But with a population of more than a billion, they’ve still got a long way to go.

The UAE has also confirmed it’s been sending aid to India to help cope with the Covid-19 crisis.
