New Delhi (NVI): With a very high number of COVID patients recovering every single day, India’s steady trend of posting high level of recoveries continues with the country recording 93,420 new recoveries in the last 24 hours, taking the recovery rate to 82.14 per cent today.

With this, the total number of coronavirus recoveries have reached 48,49,584, according to Health Ministry data.

India has maintained its top global ranking in total recoveries with such high successive single day record numbers.

Furthermore, as India records more recoveries than the new cases, the gap between recovered cases and the active cases is continuously widening.

The recovered cases (48,49,584) exceed the active cases (9,60,969) by nearly 39 lakh (38,88,615).

This has also ensured that the active caseload accounts for merely 16.28 per cent of the total positive cases. This has sustained on its steady declining path.

Following the national lead, 24 States/UTs are also reporting higher number of new recoveries than the new cases.
