Is the pandemic slowing down in India?

India has been recording an average of 64,000 cases daily so far this month, down from more than 86,000 daily cases in the last two weeks of September. It’s also a steep drop from earlier in September, when daily cases averaged around 93,000.

More than 1.1 million samples have been tested daily on an average so far in October, up from 70,000 in August. Last month, 1.05 million samples, on an average, were tested daily.

Daily deaths too have been declining in most states. But testing has remained consistent.

So, on the face of it, it appears there has been a slowdown in case numbers.
