India has seen a slight increase in the number of Covid-19 cases over the past week, with 2,514 fresh cases reported in the last 24 hours as compared to 2,183 cases reported the previous Monday (April 18).

Dr. Lalit Kant, former head of the department of epidemiology at the Indian Council of Medical Research said, “An increase in the number of cases was expected once people started taking off masks. There will be periodic ups and downs in the number of cases, what is important are the number of severe diseases and deaths.”
