Timely, proactive, and graded strategy initiatives for effective COVID-19 management in the country, have ensured that the actual caseload of COVID patients remains manageable.
“The actual caseload of COVID in the country is only 3,58,692 today,” a release by the union health ministry stated on Saturday.
“The number of recovered cases has further increased to 6,53,750. The difference between recovered and active cases is progressively growing. It stands at 2,95,058 today,” the release added.
Medical attention is being provided to all the 3,58,692 active cases, either in home isolation or in hospitals for severe cases added the release.
It further stated that coordinated measures taken by the Union and State/UT governments have ensured effective overall management of the COVID pandemic.
“The Centre continues to support and supplement the efforts of the state governments by sending Central teams of experts to areas witnessing an increase in caseload,” the release added.
A central team has been deployed to Bihar to assist the state in the assessment of COVID management in the state and to provide all necessary support.
