India reaches another record of highest single day recoveries

New Delhi:21/8/20:On a continuous path of registering high single-day recoveries, India has touched another peak of posting the highest recoveries of COVID-19 cases in a single day. 62,282 have recovered and been discharged in the past 24 hours.

With more patients recovering and being discharged from hospitals and home isolation (in case of mild and moderate cases), the total recoveries have crossed the 21.5 lakh mark today (21,58,946). The gap between recovered patients and active COVID-19 cases has increased and reached 14,66,918 today. As a higher number of patients recover, their percentage rate continues to steeply rise along with steady decline in percentage Active Cases.

With such high level of recoveries, India’s Recovery Rate has soared past 74% (74.28% today) ensuring more and more patients are recovering.

This is bolstered by 33 States and UTs reporting Recovery Rate more than 50%.

The current active cases (6,92,028) compose the actual caseload of the country. It is 23.82% of the total positive cases today, registering a further drop in the last 24 hours.  They are under active medical supervision.

A sharpened focus on improved and effective clinical treatment in hospitals, supervised home isolation, use of non-invasive oxygen support, improved services of the ambulances for ferrying patients for prompt and timely treatment, up-gradation of clinical skills of doctors treating COVID-19 patients by active technical guidance through tele-consultation sessions of AIIMS, New Delhi, etc., have together led to point-to-point and efficient patient management. This has ensured that India’s Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is maintained below the global average. It is on a continuous positive slide and currently stands at 1.89%.

8,05,985 samples were tested in the last 24 hours for identification of the disease. This has taken the cumulative tests to 3,3,467,237.

The testing lab network in the country is being continuously strengthened which as on today consists of 1504 labs in the country; 978 labs in the government sector and 526 private labs. These include:

• Real-Time RT PCR based testing labs: 772 (Govt: 453 + Private: 319)

• TrueNat based testing labs: 614 (Govt: 491 + Private: 123)

• CBNAAT based testing labs: 118 (Govt: 34 + Private: 84)
