Indian authorities this Monday confirmed more than 100,000 cases of coronavirus last day, the lowest number in the past two months, amid a sustained decline in infections and deaths following the sharp recovery between April and May in the Asian country.
The Indian government has reported on its balance sheet, published on the social network Twitter, that 100,636 positive and 2,427 deaths have been reported in the past 24 hours, bringing the total to 28,909,975 and 349,186 respectively.
Likewise, he pointed out that there are currently 1,401,609 active cases in the country, 76,190 fewer than the previous day, and has estimated the total number of people who have recovered from COVID-19 to date, including 174,399, at 27,159,180 a day .
This decline in cases has led several states, including Maharashtra – the epicenter of the latest wave of infections – to take steps to reduce restrictions on a gradual return to normal.
Maharashtra, where the city of Bombay is located, begins this Monday to lift the restrictions in a five-step process that takes into account the positivity rate and the occupancy of hospital beds.
The capital New Delhi will also begin a process of disarray with the opening of shops, supermarkets and markets with restrictions while the metro, which was suspended on May 10th, will operate at 50 percent of its capacity.
On the flip side, sources from Indian television broadcaster NDTV have indicated that the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) will be conducting medical studies with the Covaxin vaccine in children from Monday.
