Covid cases decline, fall below 30,000-mark – ET HealthWorld


NEW DELHI: Fresh daily Covid cases in India fell below the 30,000-mark on Thursday for the third time since July 13, continuing with the declining trend of pandemic that is being seen consistently since its peak on September 17.

This is the first time since July 13 when daily cases have fallen below 30,000 on a day other than Monday, when the number of infections are low because of low testing during the weekend. The previous two occasions when the infections breached the 30,000-mark were Mondays — December 7 and November 16.

Despite this consistent fall, India is still the world’s third largest contributor of daily Covid cases. According to the latest figures provided by European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, US tops the chart with 2.2 lakh cases and Brazil is a distant second with over 50,000 cases. Russia and Germany are world number four and five after India.

With 29,497 fresh cases on Thursday, India’s Covid caseload has reached 97,97,150. While total recoveries have reached 92,89,743, actives cases went down by nearly 9,000 to 3,65,229. With 4,470 new cases, Kerala topped the list of states and was followed by Maharashtra which reported 3,824 cases. West Bengal was at the third slot with 2801 cases. Delhi, that had reported 2,463 cases on Wednesday, saw a decline of 888 cases and with 1575 new cases on Thursday, it was pushed to number six in the list of states with maximum daily cases.
