India’s daily new covid cases and deaths continue to decline. Spare a few minutes to know more it.
India’s record lowest cases
On Tuesday, the country reported the lowest daily rise in Covid deaths in last three months. In the past 24 hours, the country reported 553 fresh fatalities, taking the total death toll due to Covid in the country to 4,03,281.
Over 34000 cases in the last 24 hours
The country reported 34,703 daily new cases in the last 24 hours, which is lowest in 111 days. With this, the country’s total tally has gone up to 30,619,932. This is the third time in last 8 days that the country has reported less than 40,000 new Covid cases.
According to the India Council of Medical Research (ICMR), 421,424,881 samples have been tested for Covid-19 so far of which 1,647,424 were tested in the last 24 hours.
The health ministry says that 553 people lost their lives due to Covid and related complications in the last 24 hours. This was the lowest fatality figure in 91 days. The national recovery rate has improved marginally to 97.17 per cent. While all these indicators show huge relief for people and the exhausted healthcare workers, doctors and other related staff, it is the low vaccination rate that may emerge as the new headache for the authorities. We had reported yesterday about how the week-on-week study shows some troubling signs in the ongoing vaccination drive.
