Second wave turns corner as daily cases fall for 7 days, Health News, ET HealthWorld
Deaths continue to be high and may stay that way for some more time, although average daily fatalities have dropped marginally in the last two days.
The daily toll crossed 4,000 again on Saturday.
However, other indicators are looking positive although these may still not be accurately reflecting the massive Covid crisis in India’s rural landscape because of low testing numbers there. The seven-day rolling average of daily cases, a reliable pointer to the direction of the wave, has dropped by nearly 50,000, from 3.91 lakh on May 8 to 3.54 lakh on Saturday.
In another welcome change, the national test positivity rate (TPR) has dipped over the last seven days.
