New Delhi: India has been marching firmly on the road to enhanced COVID-19 recoveries day by day. Monday, the country registered the highest single-day recoveries with as many as 57,584 COVID-19 patients getting cured and discharged in the last 24 hours.
This achievement has further spurred India’s Recovery Rate to cross the 72% milestone. This is the result of successful and coordinated implementation of an effective containment strategy, aggressive and comprehensive testing coupled with the standardized clinical management of the critical patients. India has followed a Standard of Care protocol for the differentiated categorization of COVID-19 patients- mild, moderate, and severe as clearly formulated in the Clinical Management Protocol of Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW). Effective clinical management strategies have shown to yield positive results.
With the increasing number of patients recovering and being discharged from hospitals and in-home isolation, India’s COVID-19 recoveries have reached nearly 2 million (19,19,842). This has ensured that the difference between the recovered and active cases continues to expand. It is 12,42,942 as of today.
The actual caseload of the country, viz. the Active Cases (6,76,900 on date) has reduced and currently comprises only 25.57% of the total positive cases. Early identification of cases has helped to ensure timely and prompt isolation of the mild and moderate cases and hospitalization of the severe and critical cases thereby leading to the timely and effective management of cases. The Case Fatality Rate has further slumped today touching 1.92%.
