The series of pro-active, pre-emptive and coordinated steps taken by the centre and states for containment and prevention of Covid-19 has contributed to a gradual surge in recovery, a health ministry bulletin said. Aggressive testing coupled with timely diagnosis has led to identifying Covid-affected patients before they progress into an advanced stage of the disease; effective implementation of containment zones, surveillance activities ensured that the rate of infection stays under control. The norms and standards for care of home isolation along with use of oxymeters have helped to keep a check on the asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic patients without burdening the hospital infrastructure. Such graded policy and holistic approach has led to the recovery of 18,850 people in the 24 hours to Monday evening, taking the total cumulative number of recovered cases among Covid-19 patients to 5,53,470.

There are 3,01,609 active cases and they are all under medical supervision either in hospitals, Covid care centres or in home isolation. There are 2,51,861 more recovered cases than active cases.

India’s fatality rate has also dropped to 2.64% owing to the enhanced stress on clinical management of critical cases. AIIMS Delhi continues to handhold the dedicated Covid hospitals (DCH) through the COVID-19 National Teleconsultation Centre. Thirty states have a fatality rate lower than the national average.
