During the last 24 hours, 4,835 COVID-19 patients have been cured in India, taking the overall tally of cured patients to 91,818.
This was informed by the union health ministry on Monday in a statement issued to the media
“The recovery rate in the country is progressively increasing and has reached 48.19 per cent amongst COVID-19 patients,” the statement added.
“Presently there are 93,322 active cases in the country which are under active medical supervision,” the ministry said.
“The case fatality rate is 2.83 per cent. The case fatality rate on May 18 was 3.15 per cent,” it added.
The ministry further added that a steady decline can be seen in the case fatality rate in the country.
“The relatively low death rate is attributed to the continued focus on surveillance, timely case identification and clinical management of the cases,” it added.
“Two specific trends are thus noticed, while the recovery rate is increasing, on one hand, case fatality is going down on the other,” the ministry further said.
The ministry further informed that the testing capacity has increased in the country through 472 government and 204 private laboratories.
‘Cumulatively, 38,37,207 samples have been tested so far for COVID-19, whereas, 1,00,180 samples were tested on Sunday,” the ministry further said.
