With a jump of 46,253 new COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, the country’s overall coronavirus case count has reached 83.13 lakh, according to Health Ministry data shared this morning.
The daily number of cases rose 20%, approaching the national weekly average of 45,000, after falling 15% on Monday.
COVID-19-related deaths also increased slightly from Monday’s figure of 514. With that, 1,23,611 lost their lives to the highly viral illness.
Although active cases in India still fell to 5.3 lakh, the decline in the number has slowed as the curve of coronavirus cases shows signs of flattening instead of a steady decline.
More than 76.5 lakhs have successfully combated the disease, with 53,357 people released in the past 24 hours.
