India’s COVID-19 recoveries have crossed the historic peak of 1.5 million today with recovery rate amongst patients scaling another high of almost 70 percent.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Monday said that the recovery of 15,35,743 patients has been made possible because of the policy of testing aggressively, tracking comprehensively and treating efficiently. Better ambulance services, focus on standard of care and use of non-invasive oxygen have given the desired results.
With the highest ever single day recoveries of 54,859 in the last 24 hours, the Recovery Rate amongst the COVID-19 patients has scaled another high of almost 70 percent.
The record high recoveries have ensured that the actual caseload of the country viz. the active cases has reduced and currently comprises only 28.66% of the total positive cases. India has posted more than 9 lakh recoveries than the active cases (6,34,945).
The coordinated efforts of Centre and State/UT governments on early detection through aggressive testing and efficient clinical management of hospitalized cases have shown results with continuously regressing Case Fatality Rate. It is 2 percent, as on date, and steadily declining. Early identification of cases has also led to steeply falling percentage active cases.
