New Delhi: A consistently increasing number of recoveries has pushed India’s Recovery Rate amongst the COVID-19 patients to nearly 75%.
With the recoveries of 57,989 COVID patients in the last 24 hours, the total number of recoveries has reached 22,80,566 today.
India’s total recoveries now exceed the total active cases (7,07,668) by nearly 16 lakhs (1,572,898).
The constantly increasing recoveries have ensured that the actual caseload of the country viz. the active cases, has reduced and currently comprises only 23.24% of the total positive cases. This has also resulted in gradually falling mortality rate. Currently at 1.86%, India’s Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is one of the lowest globally.
At the same time, India has exceeded cumulative tests of more than 3.5 crore today. Consistently testing more than 8 lakhs tests since the last six days, with 8,01,147 COVID-19 tests in the past 24 hours, the total has touched 3,52,92,220.
