India has hit a devastatingly grim milestone as the coronavirus runs roughshod through the country. 

Over 201,000 people there have now died from COVID-19, making India the fourth country to cross that mark. 

Meanwhile, Indian health officials reported another day of world-record setting infections — more than 362,000. 

The virus is crushing India's health system, which is running desperately low on equipment and supplies. A number of countries, including the U.S., have offered to provide assistance.
