Total recoveries in India surpass 26 lakh

Higher number of patients are recovering and being discharged from hospitals and home isolation (in case of mild and moderate cases).

The COVID-19 recoveries have crossed 26 lakh today. Recovery of 2,648,998 patients has been made possible because of the holistic and strategic policy of Testing aggressively, Tracking comprehensively and Treating efficiently in supervised home isolation and facility isolation, and in hospitals.

With better ambulance services ensuring reduced response time, focus on Standard of Care and use of non-invasive oxygen, steroids and anti- coagulants, the Recovery Rate has now reached 76.47%.

It is on a continuous decline and currently stands at 1.81%.
