Highest single-day Covid recoveries in India at 51,255

New Delhi (NVI): India has recorded highest-ever single day COVID-19 recoveries of 51,255, according to the Ministry of Health. India’s total recoveries from COVID-19 have touched 11,45,629, with 51,225 patients cured and discharged.

With the highest ever single-day increase in recovered patients in the last 24 hours, the recovery rate has seen a high of 65.44%, the Health Ministry said in a statement. This means that more and more COVID-19 patients are getting cured and discharged, it said.

“Coordinated implementation of COVID-19 management strategy by the Union and State/UT governments and selfless sacrifice of all frontline health and other workers and COVID-19 warriors across sectors have ensured that the recoveries are continuously on the rise,” it said.

The gap between the recoveries and the active cases has seen a steady rise. On June 10, 2020, for the first time, the total number of recovered patients exceeded the active cases with a difference of 1,573 which has increased to 5,77,899 as on today.

The active cases are the actual caseload for India and currently the active cases (5,67,730) account for 32.43% of the total cases and all are under medical supervision either in hospitals and in-home isolation, the ministry said.

“The successful and coordination implementation of the effective containment strategy, aggressive testing and standardized clinical management protocols based on a comprehensive Standard of Care framework, have resulted in a consistent trend of rising Recovery Rate and progressively reducing Case Fatality Rate,” it added.

India has one of the lowest Case Fatality Rate (CFR) at 2.13% as compared to the global average, according to the ministry.
