India began the week with its lowest daily coronavirus caseload in nearly three months-- data for the previous 24 hours from the health ministry showed on October 20. New cases being reported daily continue to maintain a decreasing trend from a peak in September. Adding 54,044 new cases in the period since, the country’s caseload has risen to 7.3 million and is the second highest behind the United States. Concerns remain over an undoing of this trend as the festive season fast approaches, and winter stands knocking.
