India sets unprecedented record, Doubling Time nearly 73 days

New Delhi/Chandigarh, October 15, 2020: India is reporting a progressively high increase in the recoveries and a persistent decline in the percentage active cases.
As a result, the doubling time of the infection has sharply improved and it is now almost 73 days (72.8 days).
This indicates a substantial fall in the daily New Cases and the consequent increase in time taken to double the Total Cases.
India has come a long way from registering a doubling rate of 25.5 days in mid August to now registering a doubling rate of nearly 73 days.
This is the result of collaborative action by States/UTs under the Centre’s strategy of comprehensive and high countrywide testing, prompt and effective surveillance and tracking, quick hospitalization and effective adherence of the Standard Treatment Protocol issued by the Union Government.
This is also the combined outcome of the selfless service and dedication of doctors, paramedics, frontline workers and all other COVID-19 warriors.
81,514 new recoveries were added in the last 24 hours. With this, the total number of recoveries are nearly 64 Lakh (63,83,441).
Higher number of single day recoveries is also reflected in the continuous increase in the national recovery rate, which has crossed 87% and now is 87.36%.
67,708 new confirmed cases were registered in the last 24 hours in the country.
680 case fatalities have been reported in the past 24 hours.
These have been sustained below the 1000 mark since 12 days.
Update on Chandigarh (as at 6.30 pm)
In Chandigarh, in the last 24 hours, 113 patients were cured and discharged, while 83 new patients were diagnosed with Covid-19.
Two fatalities were reported – both men who were 43 and 66 years old.
