The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Wednesday said that India has scaled an unprecedented peak with active coronavirus cases dropping below the 5-lakh mark for the first time after 106 days.
In a tweet today morning, the Health Ministry said, it assumes significance in the context of many countries reporting a surge in their active caseload.
“This landmark achievement has been made possible by the Centre’s sustained, graded and targetted strategies, their effective implementation by the States and UTs, dedicated and selfless service of doctors and all other COVID-19 warriors,” the Health Ministry added.
Top medical body Indian Council of Medical Research said that a total of 12,07,69,151 samples have been tested for the Covid-19 pandemic up to 10 November. Of these, 11,53,294 samples were tested yesterday, ICMR said.
