India's Covid-19 daily cases further decline, reports over 46,000 fresh infections in 24 hours
New Delhi/IBNS: After being battered by Novel Coronavirus for months, India, a country of 1.3 billion people, is slowly and steadily showing a brighter picture as the country's daily cases significantly dropped to 46,790 on Tuesday.
Maintaining the decline in Covid-19 daily cases in the last few days, the number of infections in the last 24 hours plunged below 50,000-mark for the first time since July.
However, the Covid-19 tally has further increased to 75,97,063, almost nine months after the first Coronavirus case was reported in India.
The Covid-19 toll has touched 1,15,197 with 587 people infected with the virus dying in 24 hours between Monday and Tuesday mornings.
Though the Covid-19 threat apparently appears to retreat in the country, India is staring at a further surge in cases in the festive season which has already begun.
In view of the possible spread of the infection, the Calcutta High Court on Monday in a landmark judgement barred all visitors from entering into the area which is at least five metres from a pandal erected due to West Bengal's biggest festival Durga Puja.
The court has ruled that maximum 25 people, who should happen to be the puja organisers, can enter into the pandals in the state.
