India has reported the world's third-largest number of coronavirus infections.

India's interior minister Amit Shah was hospitalised again on Tuesday after complaining of fatigue and body ache, four days after he said he had recovered from Covid-19.

Shah, a close aide of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was admitted to the government-run All India Institute for Medical Sciences in the capital New Delhi, the hospital said in a statement.

"He is comfortable and continuing his work from the hospital," it said, adding he had tested negative for Covid-19.

India has reported the world's third-largest number of coronavirus infections after the United States and Brazil, with cases topping 50,000 every day since July 30. India's cases jumped by 55,079 on Tuesday, taking the total to 2.7 million, while deaths rose by 876 to a total of 51,797.
