India has crossed yet another significant milestone in its fight against COVID, as the recovery rate has improved to 94.37 per cent. The number of daily recoveries outnumbered the new daily cases for the 9th consecutive day today.
The total recovered cases in the country stands at around 22 times the number of active cases with cumulative recovery of over 91 lakh people so far.
The new daily positive cases continue to remain below 50 thousand mark for nearly about a month now. In the last 24 hours, nearly 36 thousand new cases were reported while nearly 42 thousand people recovered in the same time span.
The active caseload of the country has witnessed further drop and continues to remain below 4.2 per cent. The total active cases in the country has reduced further and stands at four lakh 3 thousand 248 which comprises merely 4.18 per cent of the total reported cases.
The Health Ministry has informed that nearly 75 percent of the new covid cases are concentrated in 10 states and Union territories of Delhi, Maharashtra , Kerala, West Bengal, Haryana and Rajasthan among others. It said 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 482 case fatalities were reported in the past 24 hours.
