Encouraging news today from India – the South Asian nation just reported the smallest increase in new COVID-19 infections and deaths since mid-March.

The pandemic has taken a heavy toll on the world’s second most-populated country. COVID-19 variants kept derailing the government’s attempts to control new infections and deaths. Secondary crises are emerging as a result; thousands of children have lost at least one parent to the disease.

Last week, experts said India could be approaching the “end-stage” of the pandemic.

“We monitor the situation in India closely because we have so much work there. We’ve been really glad to see things opening up in the major metros as the COVID numbers are going down,” John Pudaite of Bibles For The World says.

“Even in the Northeast region, we’ve seen it (the new infection rate) start to plateau, so we’re very encouraged about the situation there.”
