India reported 16,326 COVID-19 cases and 666 deaths in the last 24 hours. Data from the Health Ministry on Saturday morning also indicates that 17,677 people recovered during this time. With this, the total number of active cases in the country has now dropped to 1.73 lakh - the lowest in 233 days.
