New Delhi: Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan on Saturday said that India’s recovery rate of coronavirus has surged over 58 per cent with 3 lakh cured and discharged patients.
“Our recovery rate has gone above 58 per cent and out of the total five lakh confirmed patients around 3 lakh people have recovered from COVID-19. The rest are also on the road to recovery and will hopefully return to their homes safe and sound,” Dr Harsh Vardhan said.
“Our mortality/fatality rate is near 3 per cent which os very less. Our doubling rate has come down to nearly 19 days, which was 3 days before the lockdown,” Dr Harsh Vardhan said.
The testing facilities have been ramped up in the country and yesterday alone over 2,30,000 tests were conducted in the 1,026 approved labs in the country.
