New Delhi: For the 13th day in an unbroken string, India has maintained its steady trend of clocking less than 10 lakh active cases.
The number of active cases today is 9,37,625. This is 7371 cases less than yesterday.
Despite the extended weekend, India has posted high daily testing numbers over Thurday-Friday-Saturday with 10,97,947, 11,32,675 and 11,42,131 tests respectively.
There has been an exponential rise in India’s daily testing capacities. More than 15 lakhs tests can be conducted every day.
An average of 11.5 lakh tests were done on a daily basis during the past ten days.
From merely one in Janauary 2020, India’s total tests have crossed 7.89 crore so far. There has been a commensurate dip in the Positivity Rate. With progressively falling Positivity Rate, testing has worked as a highly effective tool to limit the spread of COVID-19 infection.
Very high levels of testing lead to early identification, prompt isolation & effective treatment of COVID-19 cases. These have eventually resulted in a sustained low Fatality Rate.
