New Delhi (NVI): India crossed the 23 lakh COVID-19 recoveries mark and the COVID-19 recovery further rose to 75.27 per cent in the country, according to Health Ministry.

The country in the last 24 hours witnessed 57,469 coronavirus recoveries, that took the total number of recoveries to 23,38,035.

India has posted more than 16lakh (16,27,264) recoveries than the active cases (7,10,771which are under active medical care).

The record high recoveries have ensured that the actual caseload of the country viz. the active cases, has reduced and currently comprises only 22.88 per cent of the total positive cases.

In addition to this, the case fatality rate (CFR) has further dipped to 1.85 per cent.

This has been made possible because of effective implementation of the policy of “TESTING aggressively, TRACKING comprehensively through surveillance and contact tracing and TREATING efficiently”.

Furthermore, effective clinical management of the patients in the ICUs has been instrumental in keeping the Case Fatality Rate low and on a steady downward trajectory.

A major role in India’s substantial rate of recovering and declining case fertility rate has been played by the ‘National e-ICU on COVID-19 Management’ exercise being conducted by AIIMS New Delhi in active collaboration with Ministry of Health.
