Total active cases - total cases minus recovered people - continued to fall and were close to 4 lakh. Daily recoveries remained significantly higher than new infections as 42,533 people were discharged. With this, more than 90.58 lakh people have recovered from coronavirus till now. India's average daily case count has been on the decline, slowly but consistently, since the September peak.
