India's coronavirus infections surpass China, but contagion slowing

India's coronavirus infections surpass China, but contagion slowingIndia's total novel corornavirus cases rose to 85,940 on Saturday, taking it past China, where the pandemic originated last year, though a strict lockdown enforced since late March has reduced the rate of contagion. State leaders, businesses and working class Indians have called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to reopen the battered economy, but the government is expected to extend the lockdown, which would otherwise expire on Sunday, though with fewer restrictions. The toll in the United States, United Kingdom and Italy is much higher.
