Coronavirus Cases In India: The pandemic, however, is far from over, the Finance Ministry’s monthly report has warned.

India may have “crossed the peak of coronavirus caseload”, the Finance Ministry has said in its September economic review report, stressing that “consequent demand resurgence is palpable in many sectors” as the country eases restrictions that were put in place to check the spread of virus.

“Data for the 14-day period from September 17 to 30 suggests that India may have crossed the peak of Covid-19 caseload. During this period, the seven-day moving average of daily positive cases has steadily declined from about 93,000 to 83,000 while the seven-day moving average of daily tests have risen from about 1,15,000 to 1,24,000,” highlights the ministry’s monthly report.

India, the second worst-hit country in the world by the pandemic after the United States, has logged over 65 lakh Covid cases so far; over 1.01 lakh coronavirus patients have died. The country reported its first case on January 30.
