After seeing a static trend of daily Covid-19 cases for the past 20 days where daily logging of around 25-35k was seen, the number of cases reported daily, the numbers have started coming down.

On September 20th, 26,115 fresh cases were reported which fluctuated for 10 days and came down to 23,529 as of yesterday' data published at 8AM today.

What experts feared as the beginning trends of the third wave with over 40 thousand cases being registered daily a couple of weeks ago, the cases have started to come down now. From 26,115 cases on September 20th, the number rose to almost 32 thousand on September 22nd. But from September 23, 2021, they started falling again and steeped to 26k within 3 days. The cases took the sharpest dive 3 days ago, on 27th when just 18,795 cases were recorded making it the lowest count of fresh cases in 201 days. As of Thursday, September 30th, active cases stand at 2,77,020, the lowest in 195 days and the recovery rate at 97.85%, the highest since March 2020 while 23,529 fresh cases have been reported.

At the peak of the second wave, cases as high as 4,14,188 new ones, were being recorded daily. At that time, only 2.2% of the population was fully vaccinated and around 10% jabbed with the first dose. However now, around 47% of the people have received their first dose and 16.9% have been fully vaccinated. Most of the experts believe that the third wave is set to hit India in the month of October and have expressed concerns about India's preparedness for it.
