India records less than 1,000 Covid-19 deaths for nine consecutive days

India's confirmed coronavirus number has surpassed seven million, with new cases falling in recent weeks, even as health experts warn of a mask and fatigue sets in.

Deaths from Covid-19 rose by 918 in the last 24 hours to 108,334, the ministry said.

Of the new recovered cases, 80 percent are being reported from 10 states, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, West Bengal, Delhi and Chhattisgarh.

The ICMR said that 9,94,851 samples had been tested for COVID-19 on Sunday, taking the total number of samples tested in the country up till 11 October to 8,78,72,093, ANI reported. Almost 84% of the new deaths in a single day were reported from 10 states, with the maximum number (308) of deaths recorded in Maharashtra.

The rise in infections in India comes as the government continues to lift restrictions to boost an economy battered by a severe lockdown imposed in March. The share of deaths in total closed cases stands at 1.02%. India has third-highest death toll and second-highest infections. The seventh block of one million cases came in 14 days, compared with 13 days for the sixth, 12 days for the fifth and 14 days for the fourth 1 million cases.

India is also reporting high number of recoveries. The number of people recovered is six times more than the number of active cases of infection.

Globally, there are 37,297,350 Covid-19 cases, out of which 25,763,900 are considered recovered, according to a tally compiled by news agency AFP.

816 case fatalities have been reported in the past 24 hours. The state has added 132988 cases in the past 10 days.

Bangladesh, the world's most densely populated country, also hosts the world's largest refugee camp near Cox's Bazar. Both have contributed more than 11,000 to the new cases.

Karnataka has reported 10517 cases, to take its tally to 700786.
