New Delhi: India has registered a landmark achievement in the fight against the global pandemic on Friday.

“The ongoing trend of exponential increment in India’s total recoveries continues. The total recovered cases of the country have crossed a crucial peak of 95 lakhs.

The chasm between active cases and recovered cases is continuously widening”, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare officials shared.

While recoveries have surpassed the active cases by more than 92 lakhs, the recovery rate has also increased to 95.40 per cent, they added.

India is one of the top countries with the highest recovery rate globally.

The total recovered cases are more than 30 times the number of active cases. India’s present active case load of 3,13,831 consists of just 3.14 per cent of India’s total positive cases, the Ministry maintained.

New recoveries have exceeded new cases continuously since the last 21 days.

Kerala has reported the maximum number of single day recoveries with 4,970 newly recovered cases. 4,358 people have recovered in Maharashtra in the past 24 hours followed by 2,747 in West Bengal.

Kerala continues to report the highest daily new cases at 4,969. It is followed by West Bengal and Chhattisgarh with 2,245 and 1,584 new cases respectively.

Daily deaths in India are on a sustained decline. Less than 500 daily deaths have been registered since the last 13 days, the Ministry sources elaborated.
