India nears 10 lakh Covid recoveries | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: As India approaches a landmark 10 lakh Covid-19 recoveries, the fatality rate due to the infection has dropped further to 2.2% — the lowest since April 1. States like Delhi, Haryana, Assam, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Rajasthan and the Union Territory of Ladakh were among those with over 70% recovery rates.
Others like Meghalaya, Sikkim, Karnataka, Nagaland, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Mizoram and Himachal Pradesh were part of the bottom 10 with a relatively low recovery rate.
“Not only has the case fatality rate been low, but successful implementation of effective containment strategy, aggressive testing and standardised clinical management protocols based on a holistic standard of care approach have in tandem resulted in a consistent trend of more than 30,000 recoveries per day for the sixth consecutive day,” the government said.
Despite the impressive recovery rate, the unabated rise in daily cases continues to be a cause for concern. On Wednesday, the health ministry recorded 48,513 fresh cases, taking the Covid-19 tally to 15.3 lakh cases, while the death toll rose to 34,193 with 768 new deaths registered in the last 24 hours.
With 35,286 patients discharged in 24 hours till Wednesday morning, the number of recoveries have gone up to 988,029. The recovery rate among Covid-19 patients too has increased to 64.5%. The number of active cases stood at 509,447.
