Number of recoveries exceed active cases for the first time

NEW DELHI: Since the Covid-19 outbreak for the first time the number of recovered patients has exceeded the total active cases with the health ministry recording 1,33,632 active cases on Wednesday, while 1,35,205 people have been cured so far.
Health ministry said in a statement, “As many as 5,991 patients were cured of Covid-19 in the last 24 hours. This takes the total number of patients recovered to 1,35,205, while the total number of active cases is now 1,33,632. For the first time, the total number of recovered patients has exceeded the active cases. The recovery rate now stands at 48.88%.”
Experts said that a comparison of the cumulative data of active and recovered cases may not give a correct picture of the course of the pandemic. The number of daily deaths may be a more reliable metric.
