These figures are from the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. As the death toll went up to 5,815, there were 1,01,497 active cases in the country, the ministry said.

“We are expecting cases to increase as restrictions are gradually being lifted. While containment exercise will continue, it is a relief that recovery rate is improving fast and deaths are limited. Our focus is to keep death rate as low as possible. The increasing number of recoveries shows that our strategy of early detection and clinical management is right,” a health ministry official said.
