Covid-19 recoveries in India are more than three times the current active cases
India continues to make progress in its battle with Covid-19 as the number of recoveries in the country is more than three times the active cases being currently treated, with the fatality rate constantly decreasing.
The Union Health Ministry of India announced on Monday that Covid-19 recoveries in the country have surpassed 23 Lakh, and are now more than three times the active cases undergoing treatment, in addition, the fatality rate - that has been falling over the past weeks - stands now at 1.85%.
Following the recovery of 57,469 Covid-19 patients, the total recoveries tally has reached 2,338,035, achieving a recovery rate of 75.27% which is over three times the active cases in India.
The ministry indicated that the achievement came about as a result of the implementation of an aggressive testing policy, comprehensive tracking and surveillance, contact-tracing, and efficient treatment provided by medical personnel.
The ministry said in a statement "Those in home isolation, being medically supervised and monitored, are also recovering at a fast pace", before adding "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. It has further dipped 1.85% today".
The ministry also shed light on the important role played by the national "e-ICU on Covid-19 management" which is held by AIIMS on Tuesdays and Fridays to answer the ICU doctors' queries and share knowledge related to the treatment of Covid-19, in achieving these major steps in the country's battle with coronavirus.
