India Active Corona Cases Jumped by just 58859 in last week, it is the lowest in 4 weeks
The Increase in active cases started to slow down after the week of 22nd to 28th July.
- India added 96177 cases in the 7 days ending 28th July. This reduced to 75985 in the 7 days ending 4th August
- It then fell further from 75985 to 58859 in the 7 days ending August 11th.
Why is this happening?
This is happening mainly due to sustained pace of recoveries and a fall in new cases growth.
- New cases grew 63% between 15th July and 28th July. Recoveries grew marginally higher at 67% during that period.
- However in the period 29th July to 11th August, new cases added slowed down to 52% but recoveries sustained at 66%.
If this momentum sustains and is not a false dawn, active cases are likely to plateau soon.
