New Delhi, Sep 2: Total COVID-19 recoveries in India have crossed 29 lakh (29,01,908) as of Wednesday, the last 10 lakh recoveries being recorded in only 17 days in comparison to preceding 10 lakh recoveries which were recorded in 22 days.
As the daily recoveries increase, India registered more than 60,000 recoveries each day for the sixth day in a row. With the recovery of 62,026 cases in the past 24 hours, India’s Recovery Rate among the Covid-19 patients has further improved to 76.98 per cent.
Twelve states have reported a Recovery Rate more than the national average. Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu alone accounted for around 30 per cent of the total recoveries.
Since May 2020, there has been a 58 times hike in the number of recovered patients.
The number of recovered cases has overtaken the active cases by more than 21 lakhs. There has been a four-fold jump in the average weekly recoveries from the first week of July to last week of August.
A significant feature of India’s management of Covid-19 cases is the growing rate of recovered patients. As India continues to sustain its progressively increasing rate of recoveries, a higher number of patients are recovering and being discharged from hospitals and home isolation.
