It seems that downward trend is reversing. A few observations from 19th May 2020 National Data on the Coronavirus pandemic:-

1. New case count increased by 6150 on 19th May 2020 with increased 7 days and 14 days averages of 4593 and 4077 new case counts. New cases count for the first time crossed the mark of 6,000. Daily counts as well as averages of new cases are increasing everyday at an increasing rate.

2. Daily growth rate of the active cases and the 7 days growth rates increased to 5.1% and 3.6% respectively on 19th May 2020 than the previous period and this upward trend in these rates are not a good sign as the base is getting bigger.
