The death toll due to the novel coronavirus pandemic rose to 83 and the cases climbed to 3,577 in the country on Sunday after 505 new infections were reported in the past 24 hours, according to the Union Health Ministry.

The active Covid-19 cases stand at 3,219, while 274 people were either cured or discharged and one had migrated, the Ministry data stated.

However, a PTI tally of figures reported by states directly showed at least 110 deaths across the country, while the confirmed cases reached 3,959. Of them, 306 have been cured and discharged.

There has been a lag in the Health Ministry figures compared to the numbers announced by different states, with officials attributing the same to procedural delays in assigning the cases to individual states.
