On a continuous positive path of slide in its COVID-19 Case Fatality Rate, India has one of the lowest mortality globally. It stands at 1.93%, as of today. This is a result of coordinated efforts of the Centre and State/UT governments which has led to a continuous decline in the mortality rate.

The USA crossed 50,000 deaths in 23 days, Brazil in 95 days and Mexico in 141 days. India took 156 days to reach this national figure.

There has been sustained focus of the Union and the State/UT governments on improved and effective clinical treatment in hospitals, supervised home isolation, use of non-invasive oxygen support, and improved services of the ambulances for ferrying patients for prompt and timely treatment.

The efforts of ASHA workers have ensured effective surveillance and tracking progress of the patients in supervised home isolation.

Clinical management skills of doctors treating COVID-19 patients have been upgraded by active technical guidance through teleconsultation sessions by domain knowledge experts from AIIMS, New Delhi.

These measures have collectively ensured seamless and efficient patient management from home to hospital for critical and severe patients. This has ensured that India’s Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is maintained below the global average.

Successful implementation of aggressive testing, comprehensive tracking, and efficient treating through a plethora of measures have contributed to the existing high level of recoveries as well.

India’s recovery rate has reached nearly 72% ensuring more and more patients are recovering.

53,322 have recovered and been discharged in the past 24 hours.

With this number, the total of recovered COVID-19 patients has increased to more than 18.6 lakh (18,62,258).

The steady rise in recoveries has ensured that the percentage caseload of the country is reducing. The current active cases (6,77,444) compose the actual caseload of the country. It is 26.16% of the total positive cases today, registering a further drop in the last 24 hours. They are under active medical supervision.
