India has leaped across a significant milestone in its fight against COVID.
With a continuous decline in the number of active corona cases, the active caseload in the country today has further decreased to stand at 2.80 per cent.
The active cases in the country witnessed a decline of nearly 5,400 cases in the past 24 hours to stand at around 2.83 lakh.
The number of new daily cases remained even below 25 thousand with 24, 712 cases being reported in the last 24 hours.
The national cumulative recovery rate has also further improved to be at 95.75 per cent with recovery of over 96.93 lakh people so far.
With recovery of nearly 30 thousand people in the last 24 hours, the number of daily recoveries continue to outnumber the new daily cases.
The total recovered cases in the country today stands at over 34 times the number of active cases.
The Health Ministry has informed that enhanced countrywide medical infrastructure, implementation of the Centre’s Standard Treatment Protocol by the States and Union Territories and total dedication and commitment of doctors, paramedics and frontline workers have led to a persistent increase in the number of total recoveries in the country.
The Health Ministry has said that this has also led to a commensurate dip in the fatality rate which stands at 1.45 per cent.
It informed that 312 case fatalities were reported in the past 24 hours.
