Covid-19 cases are increasing rapidly in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh as lockdown relaxed
The novel coronavirus ( Covid-19 ) cases are increasing  rapidly in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh as their government relaxed lockdown.

Pakistan now has 86,139 confirmed cases - its tally crossed China's on Thursday.

Bangladesh has recorded more than 57,500 cases so far. And India on Friday registered yet another record single-day spike, adding 9,000 cases, taking its tally to 216,919.

Deaths remain relatively low, comparatively - at 6,075, India has had the most, and Pakistan (1,793) and Bangladesh (781) are far behind on this count.

But experts fear the numbers are a sign of undercounting, and with the peak yet to come in these countries there is also concern over their health systems coping with a sudden deluge of infections.
