On Friday morning, the government-run Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) announced that 2,075,428 tests were conducted on June 3. While this is a decrease from the 2,159,873 tests completed on June 2, the ICMR numbers reveal that 357,433,846 tests have been conducted to date.
The decrease in daily cases has coincided with containment measures implemented by state and union territory governments. Several state governments, including Delhi and Maharashtra, have declared plans to “unlock” or depart from lockdown or lockdown-like constraints, while others have announced an extension of limitations to further disrupt the chain of transmission of telecommunications.
However, because daily instances continue to exceed 100,000, the federal government stated on June 1 that the Central Board of Secondary Education’s class 12th board exams will be cancelled (CBSE). Within hours, the Council of Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (CISCE) also declared that its class 12th exams would be cancelled. When the second round of tests was announced in April, the class 10th tests were cancelled.
