New Delhi, Jul 21: With 24,491 Covid-19 patients recovering during the past 24 hours, this has pushed the cumulative figure of recovered cases among Coronavirus-19 patients to 7,24,577, recording an impressive recovery rate of 62.72 per cent.

The improved recovery rate has also ensured that India continues to have one of the lowest Case Fatality Rates, at 2.43 per cent, which is consistently falling, an official release here said.

The gap between the number of recovered cases and active cases has increased to 3,22,048. At present, there are 4,02,529 active cases and all are under medical supervision.

The improvement in the Covid-19 situation is due to the sustained, proactive, progressive and evidence-based strategies for effective surveillance, testing through expanded effective country-wide network of labs, coupled with Standard Treatment Protocol for ensuring effective clinical treatment.

In the past 24 hours, 3,33,395 samples were tested. Cumulatively 1,43,81,303 samples have been tested in the country.
