COVID-19 recovery rate reaches 92.32 pct in India

New Delhi:6/11/20: The Union Government today said that the country’s recovery rate among the COVID-19 patients has reached 92.32 percent. More than 54 thousand COVID patients recovered during the last 24 hours. The total number of recoveries has reached over 77 lakh 65 thousand. The constantly increasing recoveries have ensured that the actual caseload of the country is reduced and currently comprises only 6.19 percent of the total positive cases.

Presently, the total number of active cases in the country is five lakh 20 thousand. The Ministry said, ten States and Union Territories account for over 78 percent of total active cases in the country.

Maharashtra has the highest number of active cases with over 21 percent followed by Kerala with 16 percent, Delhi 7.8 percent, West Bengal 6.87 percent and Karnataka 6.76 percent.

In the last 24 hours, 47 thousand 638 new cases were reported taking the total number of positive cases in the country so far to over 84 lakh. The Ministry said, effective implementation of the Centre’s strategic and graded Test, Track, and Treat approach has led to higher recoveries and lower fatality.

Currently, India’s Case Fatality Rate is at 1.49 percent, which is one of the lowest globally.

In the last 24 hours, 670 deaths were reported taking the toll to one lakh 24 thousand 985.

According to the Indian Council of Medical Research, more than 12 lakh 20 thousand tests were conducted during the last 24 hours. The total number of samples tested so far has reached over 11 crores 54 lakh. The Ministry said that very high levels of testing lead to early identification, prompt isolation, and effective treatment of COVID-19 cases. It said, this also leads to a low Fatality Rate.

Starting from just one testing lab at the National Institute of Virology, Pune, in January this year, the country today has two thousand 56 labs for testing COVID samples which includes one thousand 136 government and 920 private labs.
