For almost a month the COVID-19 cases have been witnessing a downward trend, and this is the sixth consecutive day when new cases reported in the last 24 hours did not cross the 50,000 mark. With 1,939 new infections, the total caseload crossed 7.54 lakh while active cases stood at 17,748.
Currently, there are 4,89,294 active cases across India, whereas 80,66,501 patients have been cured and discharged so far.
India on Wednesday reported almost 48,000 new daily infections, keeping up the trend of daily cases below 50,000 for more than a fortnight. Some 23,794 new cases were reported in the past 24 hours, down from 33,172 on Thursday - half of last Friday's 60,486.
Actor Gurmeet Choudhary, who recently recovered from coronavirus, chose to extend a helping hand to others by donating his plasma at a hospital here on Friday. This has been made possible by the trend of Covid-19 recoveries exceeding new cases, which has ensured a total net reduction of the active caseload, it underlined. It further said that 77.83 per cent of the new recovered cases are observed to be concentrated in 10 states and union territories. With 520 deaths, the toll rose to 1,29,188. Kerala recorded 5,537 new cases while Maharashtra reported 4,496 new cases in a span of 24 hours, it said.
With 44 thousand 874 new cases reported in the last 24 HOURS, the total number of positive cases in the country reached over 87 lakh. For the successive fifth day, cases did not cross the 50,000 mark in a 24-hour cycle. However, since then, the cases have been rapidly rising in the state, which has also been the biggest contributor to daily infections several times in this period, the report added. Also, 7,506 people have died in the state while 3,81,149 have recovered.
These fresh coronavirus cases were detected from 56,553 tests conducted the previous day.
The daily caseload surpassed 200 in 73 days since September 2, growing in triple digits for the seventh consecutive day due to small cluster infections in Seoul and its surrounding Gyeonggi province as well as imported cases.
