India's biggest single-day surge in coronavirus cases with 24,879 new infections reported in the last 24 hours has taken the country's tally to 7,67,296 cases, the Union Health Ministry said this morning. Around 4.76 lakh patients have recovered since the beginning of the pandemic; 21,129 deaths linked to the illness have been recorded, according to the official figures. In the last 24 hours, 487 COVID-19 patients died.
Good to see the R trending downwards. If R goes below 1 and stays there that'll be fine. Worrying that the number of new cases is climbing -now at more than twice than four weeks ago. Even the percent rise in new cases is still too high. More and better planning is needed. Long way to go still.
