New Delhi: October saw the first monthly fall in COVID-19 cases since the outbreak of the pandemic in India, with both fresh infections and deaths declining by nearly 30% from the previous month’s figures.

Fresh cases as well as fatalities from the infection have been steadily falling since mid-September, which is reflected in the caseload of October.

Nearly 18.3 lakh new cases were recorded during the month, down from 26.2 lakh in the month of September.

In fact, October’s case count was lower than the numbers logged in August, when 19.9 lakh infections were reported, pointing to the dramatic fall in the coronavirus graph since mid-September.

COVID-19 deaths have followed a similar trajectory.

In October, a little less than 23,500 deaths were recorded, 29% less than the toll of 33,255 in September.

Before October, COVID-19 cases as well as fatalities had shown a rise in each successive month since the outbreak of the pandemic in multiple regions of the country in March.
