Earlier on Friday, active cases of coronavirus in India fell under the 9 Lakh mark since September 9. The government said that the decline could be possible due to the decrease in active cases in 20 stastes and UTs.

"For the first time since 9th Sept, Active Cases have fallen under the 9L mark, yesterday. This indicates a trend of steady decline in Active Cases. This decline has been possible due to decrease in number of active cases in 20 States/UTs over the last month," the health ministry said.

According to the data by the health ministry, India's COVD-19 recoveries rose up to over 58 lakh in October from 50,000 in May.
