SRINAGAR: The numbers are surely getting down. In the last 24 hours, only 25 deaths were reported from across Jammu and Kashmir and the highlight is that the capital cities have a single-digit death toll. The new infections stand at 1428 and those who recovered and went home happy stand at 2615.
222 positive cases in Srinagar today. The lowest since upsurge of Covid second wave. Still not a good data for good conclusion. Pl remember: the Virus appears walking away only to set in an Ambush!
