    India’s Covid numbers: 1 crore and counting but daily cases falling

    Even as the overall Covid-19 situation has improved in the last two months, the pandemic in India crossed a grim milestone on Friday night, with the number of infected crossing the 10 million (1 crore) mark.

    India is only the second country in the world, after the United States, to have more than 10 million confirmed novel coronavirus infections.

    However, the epidemic in India now seems to be in steady decline, whereas several countries in Europe and the Americas are passing through their worst phase.

    The US has been reporting between 2 lakh and 2.5 lakh cases every day, while Brazil is detecting over 50,000 cases daily. Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Russia are in the midst of a major new surge – with more than 20,000 people getting infected daily in several of these countries.

    During its worst period in the middle of September, India was finding over 90,000 infections a day. But following an unexpected turnaround, the number of cases declined consistently. From a peak of over 10 lakh cases in the third week of September, active cases have come down to just about 3 lakh now.
