Coronavirus is being fought with full might in India. Now, for the second day in a row, recoveries in a single day continue to post significant rise, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said today. The last 24 hours saw the highest ever single- day number of Coronavirus patients cured and discharged i.e. 29,557. While the total number of recovered cases has jumped to 7,82,606, there has been appreciable growth in the recovery rate, which stands at 63.18%.
A higher number of patients getting cured and discharged has contributed to increasing gap between recovered and total active cases. It is pegged at 3,56,439 today.
This accomplishment can be attributed to the Union Government led Coronavirus management strategies, the Ministry said adding that a sustained effort by the Center and State/UTs are resulting in more effective containment, aggressive testing, and prompt and efficient clinical treatment strategies. These are guided by the teams of domain experts in the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare such as the Joint Monitoring Group (JMG) and ably complemented by the technical experts at AIIMS, New Delhi, Centres of Excellence in various States/UTs, ICMR and NCDC. The Union Government continues to coordinate with the efforts of the State/UTs by sending Central teams of experts to areas witnessing an increase in caseload and handholding of COVID hospitals in States through the tele-consultation program led by AIIMS, New Delhi. These combined efforts have resulted in Case Fatality Rate being managed at low levels. It is 2.41%, as on date, and steadily declining, the Ministry said.
It also said that this has also helped in reducing the actual caseload of Coronavirus/COVID-19 cases which remains confined to 4,26,167 Active patients only.
