India broke the line of 28 million cases of coronavirus on Monday after reporting more than 150,000 last day, the lowest in 50 days, at a point where it hit the 330,000 death line.
The Indian government has reported in its latest balance sheet, published on the social network Twitter, that 152,734 infections and 3,128 deaths have been recorded in the last 24 hours, bringing the total to 28,047,534 and 329,100 respectively.
It was also stated that 2,026,092 cases are currently active, 88,416 fewer than the previous day, and the total number of people rescued from COVID-19 was estimated at 25,692,342, including 238,022 on the last day.
The country saw a drop in case numbers in the past two weeks after the country recovered dramatically in three weeks and reported more than 300,000 cases, including over 400,000 positive cases in four days.
In this context, the authorities of the capital New Delhi have announced that they will start a process starting this Monday to gradually reduce restrictions on the pandemic, according to Indian television broadcaster NDTV.
With that in mind, Indian authorities have also decided to partially open markets in Jammu and Kashmir after five weeks in detention, while Uttar Pradesh has reduced restrictions in districts with fewer than 600 active cases.
