After reaching a high of 4.14 lakh last Thursday, the daily cases has dropped significantly in the last 1 week. This is not happening for the first time. After crossing 4 lakh mark for the first time on April 30, the case count had gone down for a few days, before jumping again. Image
#Maharashtra, which at one point was contributing more than 60% of daily cases, certainly seems to be in a declining phase now. The decline in Maharashtra is likely to have the biggest impact on the national curve.

Welcome to an edition of E-xplained with @GBambawale, former Indian Ambassador to China (2017-18) to understand the big regional and global geopolitical picture within which this conflict is situated.

Follow our #thread as we live tweet his conversation with @ShubhajitRoy 👇
Indian and Chinese civilisations are both ancient. But, India looks upon different parts of the world as 'one family'. The Chinese way of thinking is summarized by the word 'China'. Their approach is, they are at the centre and everyone is peripheral, @GBambawale says.
India and China know there is no agreed boundary between us. Broadly, we stay out of each others way. We have in place agreements to maintain peace and tranquility.

It's regrettable that the PLA has thrown into the Galwan river all agreements we had reached, says @GBambawale
