New Delhi, Sep 3: India has registered the highest recoveries in a single day with 68,584 Covid-19 patients having recovered and been discharged in the past 24 hours.
The total number of recovered patients now stands at nearly 30 lakh — 2,970,492, an official release here said.
With this, India’s Recovery Rate among the Covid-19 patients has crossed 77 per cent (77.09 per cent). The number of recovered patients has outpaced the 8,15,538 active cases by more than 21.5 lakh.
The recovered patients have increased to more than 3.6 times the active cases, as on date. The record high recoveries have ensured that the actual caseload of the country — the active cases, has reduced and currently comprises only 21.16 per cent of the total positive cases.
A slew of measures including effective clinical treatment in hospitals and supervised home isolation, have ensured that India’s Case Fatality Rate (CFR) stands at 1.75 per cent today, well below the global average of 3.3 per cent.
