India reports decline in new Covid-19 cases in 24 hours, tally crosses 66.85 lakh
New Delhi/IBNS: India, the second worst Covid-19-affected country in the world, on Tuesday reported a sharp decline in Covid-19 cases as little over 61,000 fresh infections were reported in 24 hours.
With 61,267 new cases, the Covid-19 tally in India crossed 66.85 lakh.
The toll, which had already crossed one lakh, touched 1,03,569 as 884 people infected with the virus died in 24 hours between Monday and Tuesday mornings.
10,89,403 samples were tested in the same period.
Meanwhile, World Health Organisation (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has said 10 countries account for 70 per cent of all reported cases and deaths, and just three countries account for half.
"Not all countries have responded the same way, and not all countries have been affected the same way," he said.
