This is the tenth day when India reported less than 50,000 cases in a day. The last time daily new cases crossed the 50,000-threshold was on November 7.

Meanwhile, the number of cases in the national capital has seen a decline after hitting the peak of its third wave, as per Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain.

The national capital reported more than 6,000 COVID-19 cases for days together, eventually hitting a record high of over 8,000 new infections in a day. However, on November 15 and 16, Delhi reported 3,235 and 3,797 cases respectively.

Significant to note, the tests conducted on these two days were almost half the number of tests that were being carried out on a daily basis before that. Nearly 50,000 people were tested on Nov 14, while 21,098 tests were conducted on Nov 15, as per Delhi Government data.
