COVID-19: India records lowest daily rise in more than a month
India reported on Friday 186,364 new COIVD-19 infections in the last 24 hours, its the lowest daily rise since Apr 14, while deaths rose by 3,660.
The health ministry data showed that South Asian nation’s tally of infections now stands at 27.56 million, with the death toll at 318,895.
India’s official tally of daily coronavirus infections has been falling in the past few days, offering hope that its second wave is ebbing.
But there are serious concerns that many new infections are not being reported, largely due to a dearth of testing in the countryside.
