India's testing infrastructure has seen a significant boost with 2,134 labs across the country. Keeping in line with its commitment to conduct more than one million tests every day, 10,99,545 samples were tested in the last 24 hours.

Higher volumes of testing eventually lead to low Positivity Rate. There has been a sustained decrease in the number of active cases over the past few weeks. A total of 42,314 cases recovered and discharged in the last 24 hours.
