India’s lowest COVID spike in weeks, South Asia records 30m cases


India has registered its lowest recorded daily rise in COVID-19 infections in 45 days.
It reported nearly 175,000 new cases on Saturday, down from a peak of more than 400,000 a day earlier this month.
Analysts say the infection rate is going down but warn the economic fallout could get worse.
