India achieved a significant milestone on Tuesday as the country’s COVID-19 recovery rate reaches 91.96 per cent. According to the Health Ministry, more than 58 thousand COVID patients have been recovered in the last 24 hours and the total number of recoveries has gone up to over 76 lakh.
The Ministry also said that the effective implementation of the 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 per cent, which is one of the lowest globally. The ministry said new infections reported in a day have fallen below 40,000 as India registered a daily rise of 38,310 new cases on Tuesday.
With a large number of coronavirus patients recovering every day and a sustained fall in the mortality rate, the ministry said that the encouraging outcomes are the result of a collaborative, focused and effective implementation by states and Union territories under the Centre’s strategy of comprehensive testing, prompt and effective surveillance and tracking, quick hospitalisation and effective adherence of the Standard Treatment Protocol issued by the Centre.
