India records lowest daily Covid-19 death in eight months

India has crossed a crucial milestone in its fight against the global pandemic. The daily new cases have touched a new low. With a sustained, pro-active and calibrated strategy of the Centre based on ‘whole of government’ and ‘whole of society’ approach, the daily new cases have seen a consistent decline. This has ensured a steady fall in daily fatalities too. The country has recorded less than 120 fatalities after more than 8 months (8 months 9 days).

India’s active caseload has fallen to 1,77,266 . The share of Active Cases in the total Positive Cases has further compressed to 1.66 percent of the cumulative caseload.

Active cases per million population is the lowest in the world (128). Germany, Russia, Brazil, Italy, UK and USA have much higher cases per million population.
