With nearly 16 lakh COVID-19 patients recovered in the past 24 hours, country’s recovery rate jumped to nearly 70 percent as a result of the successful implementation of effective containment strategy, aggressive and comprehensive testing coupled with standardised clinical management of the critical patients.

Another positive aspect of the war against the pandemic is that the Case Fatality Rate (CFR) has also slipped below 2 percent.

With more patients recovering and being discharged from hospitals and home isolation (in case of mild and moderate cases), the total recoveries have jumped to 15,83,489 with 47,746 COVID-19 patients were discharged in the last 24 hours, said the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

The actual case load of the country is the active cases (6,39,929) which is only 28.21 percent of the total positive cases. They are under active medical supervision, the ministry said.

With a consistent and sustained increase in recoveries, the gap between recovered patients and active COVID-19 cases has reached nearly 9.5 lakh. India's ‘test, track, teat strategy is showing the desired result- the gap between percentage recoveries and percentage active cases is growing every day.

Focus on improved and effective clinical treatment in hospitals, use of non-invasive, improved and coordinated services of the ambulances for ferrying patients for prompt and timely treatment have resulted in seamless efficient patient management of COVID-19 patients.

As a result, the CFR has been low when compared to the global average. It has fallen below 2 percent on Tuesday, currently standing at 1.99 percent.
