India passes the 28 million cases of Covid-19 while the infections decrease

India on Monday surpassed 28 million coronavirus infections since the start of the pandemic, although in the last 24 hours the Asian country registered the lowest number of infections in the last 50 days.

The number of new infections rose to 152,734 on Monday, according to data from the Indian Ministry of Health, a figure far removed from the peak of more than 400,000 daily cases noted in early May in the context of a virulent second wave.

“The country has registered less than 200,000 daily cases for four consecutive days,” the Ministry added in a statement.

These data have placed the total of cases in more than 28 million, a number only surpassed by the United States with 33.2 million.

The number of deaths from covid-19 in India continues to be high, 3,128 in the last 24 hours, although it also represents an improvement compared to the 3,460 registered yesterday. According to official Indian data, the pandemic has claimed the death of 329,100 people, figures only surpassed by the United States and Brazil.

The positivity rate is around 9% when just a month ago it was close to 20%, although the World Health Organization (WHO) considers that the pandemic is only under control in a country if the positivity rate is below 5%.

The decline in cases has been reflected in cities such as New Delhi, where on Monday the authorities relaxed the confinement in force for weeks after the capital was overwhelmed, without hospital beds or medical oxygen and with its crematoria collapsed.

In the last day, the Indian capital reduced the hundred deaths for the first time since mid-April and the cases are also below one thousand, with figures from the end of March, when the worst of this wave was yet to come.

The vaccination campaign is seen as the best resource against the pandemic, and India has already administered 213 million doses so far with just over a million in the last day, a number still insufficient for its 1.35 billion inhabitants.
