Delhi’s coronavirus recovery rate nears 90-percent mark

The recovery rate of patients suffering from Coronavirus in the national capital of Delhi surpassed the national recovery rate by 35 percent with the Delhi’s recovery rate inching closer to 90 percent (at 89.5 percent currently) which is 35 percent more than the national average of 64.54 percent.

However, it has recorded over 1,000 cases in the last two days, raising concerns that the deadly outbreak might have still not been crushed in its totality.

With over 1 million tests so far, Delhi also ranks high in terms of testing at state level. Nearly half of 1 millions tests in Delhi are being done in the past one month, reflecting a ramp up in testing. As of now there are 10,743 active COVID-19 cases in Delhi.

According to the data by the state health ministry, Delhi on Thursday recorded 1,093 fresh cases in the last 24 hours, taking the total number of infections to 134,403 cases. The national capital also confirmed 29 new fatalities, bringing the death toll to 3,936.

Delhi, which was witnessing a sharp rise in coronavirus cases after the government started to phase out the nationwide lockdown, on Monday recorded its lowest cases, 619 in two months.
