Covid-19 recovery rate improves to 96.12 per cent

India crossed yet another significant milestone in its fight against COVID, as the active caseload in the country today has further decreased to stand at 2.43 per cent. With continuous decline in the number of active corona cases, the active cases in the country witnessed a decline of nearly 4 thousand cases in the past 24 hours to stand at around 2 lakh 50 thousand.

The number of new daily cases remained below 20 thousand with nearly 19 thousand fresh cases being reported in the last 24 hours.

The national cumulative recovery rate has also further improved to 96.12 per cent with the recovery of over 99 lakh people so far. With recovery of over 22 thousand 900 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 nearly 40 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 224 case fatalities were reported in the past 24 hours.
