Less than 7.1 lakh tests were done across India on Sunday, the lowest since August 23, as per the covid19india.org website that tracks official data on the pandemic. Sunday’s tests were less than half the numbers achieved just three days earlier (Thursday), when nearly 15 lakh tests were conducted, as per government data. Testing fell on Friday (13.4 lakh tests) and Saturday (9.9 lakh). The number of tests falls every Sunday, leading to a drop in cases on Mondays, but this time it was lower than the previous three Sundays. Fresh cases recorded on Monday fell to 66,251, the lowest daily since August 31.
