On Monday, India registered highest ever recovery at over 1 lakh cases against confirmed new cases of little below 75,000.
In fact, if trends continue, India seems to have bent the curve.
As one can see, since past few days, the daily recoveries are higher than daily new cases of coronavirus, thereby, the graph of active cases of coronavirus has curved.
As per data shared by Professor Shamika Ravi, the growth rate of active coronavirus cases in India has fallen to -0.3% for the first time. The negative growth rate is at a 7 day average and hence reduces the weekend effect of reduced testing.
7-day moving average of daily confirmed cases shows a perceptible decline.
India has currently registered a recovery of over 80%.

While it is too soon to celebrate, if the trend continues, we can take a sigh of relief that the worst is behind us.
