As per news report of NDTV, A total of 214 deaths have been recorded over the past 24 hours. This, however, includes a backlog of 212 deaths from Kerala -- a backlog of 62 deaths has been cleared following court appeals and the state reported 150 deaths between April 13 and April 16.  The daily death count too climbed sharply to 214. Although the death numbers include a backlog of 62 from Kerala, it is still a huge spike from the just four deaths in yesterday's bulletin.
