The declining trend of Covid-19 cases in India continued with 2,09,918 new cases recorded in the last 24 hours — marking a reduction of over 10 percent in the daily cases in comparison to the day before.

This confirms the understanding that the third wave of the pandemic in India, largely triggered by the highly contagious Omicron variant, may be ebbing.

The active caseload in the country which was 18,84,937 on January 30 also came down by 53, 669, or nearly 3 percent, and stood at 18,31,268 on January 31.

Moreover, the rolling average of weekly Covid-19 test positivity rate in India is now under 16%, as per the statistics shared by the Union health ministry which also showed that the daily test positivity rate has come down to 15.77 percent.
