NEW DELHI — India has added 45,230 new coronavirus infections, continuing a downturn.
The Health Ministry also Monday reported 496 more fatalities, raising the death toll to 122,607.
With 8.2 million cases, India is the second worst-hit country behind the U.S.
But the number of new cases being diagnosed each day is falling steadily even though testing is not declining. In the last week, there have been fewer than 50,000 new cases every day.
Many states have been easing restrictions on schooling and commercial activities to spur the economy, but experts fear a resurgence in the winter, particularly as people socialize in the festive season.
