New Delhi: India recorded its lowest daily Covid cases in 250 days today with the country reporting 10,423 cases, which was also 16 percent lower than yesterday. “India has registered a huge decline in the number of Coronavirus cases as the country reported 10,423 Covid cases,” 15,021 recoveries and 443 deaths in the last 24 hours as per the Union Health Ministry.

The active caseload stands at 153,776, which is the lowest in 250 days. The weekly positivity rate of 1.16 percent is less than two percent for the last 39 days.

The state government of Kerala on Monday said that “After reporting over 7000 Coronavirus cases in the last few days, Kerala has now registered 5,297 fresh COVID-19 cases and 368 related deaths in the last 24 hours. After the surge in daily Covid infections, the total caseload of the state rose to 4,973,954 and the fatalities to 32,049.”

According to the media report, the health department official of Maharashtra said that “Maharashtra on Monday reported 809 fresh COVID-19 cases, the lowest additions in a day after May 2, 2020, and ten fatalities. The tally of cases now stands at 6,611,887 and the death toll at 140,226.”

It has been nearly two years since the Covid-19 pandemic hit the world. The fight against Coronavirus is not over yet. Even as people around the world prepare for normalcy, some reports suggest the virus is resurging in several regions. Countries such as the US, UK, Russia, China, Singapore, Ukraine, and other countries in Eastern Europe have witnessed a sharp spike in fresh coronavirus infections in the past few days.

The UK witnessed a 14 percent rise in new cases at 283,756 cases (the highest), followed by Russia’s 217,322, according to data from the World Health Organization. The UK reported more than 50,000 cases for the first time since July 17, the Delta variant is the reason behind the surge, according to experts.

However, infections due to AY.4.2 Delta sub-lineage are spreading rapidly, according to the latest reports. In less than two years, the total number of deaths due to Coronavirus complications crossed 5 million yesterday globally. The US alone has posted over 740,000 fatalities, more than any other nation. Together, the US, the EU, Britain, and Brazil – all upper-middle- or high-income countries – account for one-eighth of the world’s population but nearly half of all reported Covid deaths.
