Meanwhile, new recoveries in India have exceeded the new cases for third consecutive week, informed the Union Health Ministry.

"New Recoveries in India have exceeded the New Cases for 3 continuous weeks, unabated. The new cases during these 3 weeks have displayed a steady trend of decline," Union Health Ministry tweeted.

"This is the result of collaborative action done by States/UTs under Centre's strategy of comprehensive testing, tracking, quick hospitalization and adherence to Standard Treatment Protocol," it added.
