Indore (Madhya Pradesh): As the cases of COVID-19 have become a routine, the fluctuating daily cases have also dropped to single digit once again in the city on Monday. Moreover, the number of total active cases has also dropped low to 105 after reaching high to 800 about a month ago.

The total number of active cases in the city on Monday was 105. The city had witnessed single-digit Covid cases on May 31.

Nonetheless, the number of sample testing has also decreased to 228, but officials believe that it is not affecting the number of daily cases.

“The number of COVID-19 cases has decreased in the city. Most of those coming positive are asymptomatic and they are coming positive while going for precautionary tests while getting treatment for other diseases,” chief medical and health officer Dr BS Saitya said.

The health officer has also cautioned people to be alert during festivities.

“Experts have alerted people about the festivities and appealed to the people to continue following Covid-19 norms as complacency can become the reason for another wave of the deadly pandemic disease,” he added.
