: In what comes as further sigh of relief, India’s COVID-19 count fell steeply on Monday with the 24-hour case tally dipping to a 152-day low and the death toll coming to the lowest in 158 days. According to a Times of India report, the country reported 26,208 cases and 358 in the last 24 hours.
The new 24-hour case tally is a 21 per cent drop from Sunday’s tally of 33,231 infections. This was the lowest number of new cases recorded in a single day since July 8, when 25,641 infections were reported in a span of 24 hours.
However, what should be noticed here is that count of fresh cases dips every Monday because of lower testing and staff shortages over the weekend.
