Coronavirus India Update: In a significant achievement, the number of recovered COVID-19 cases in India has overshot the number of active cases by 2,06,588. The number of recovered cases is 1.75 times (almost twice) the number of active cases. As per the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare latest communication on Thursday evening, during the last 24 hours, a total of 19,547 patients have been cured, taking the cumulative figure of recoveries among COVID-19 patients to 4,76,377 as of today. This is a result of focussed attention on effective surveillance through house-to-house contact tracing, early detection, and isolation as well as timely and effective clinical management of COVID-19 cases.
The Union Ministry said in its latest COVID-19 update, "India’s COVID-19 recovery rate is also steadily increasing. The recovery rate among COVID-19 patients has increased to 62.09 per cent today," adding, "It would perhaps be not fair to compare India to other countries in terms of absolute numbers, India has 195.5 cases per million population which is amongst the lowest in the world. The proactive delineation of containment and buffer zones, aggressive testing, early and timely detection and adherence to clinical protocols & better ICU/hospital management also manifests in India having one of the lowest fatalities in the world."
