India has continued the unbroken trend of the daily new recoveries outpacing the daily new additions for more than one and a half month. The country also reported less than 50,000 new daily cases for the 11th continuous day on Wednesday.

As many as 44,739 COVID-19 patients recovered in the last 24 hours against 38,617 newly detected cases. This translates to a net reduction of 6,122 in the Active Caseload which now stands at 4,46,805. The active caseload as on date comprises merely 5.01% of all COVID19 cases, the health ministry said in a bulletin.

There has been a continuous decline in the average daily cases for the past many weeks, it said. Apart from the successful dissemination of advice on COVID Appropriate Behaviour among the varied population groups, this trend assumes wider significance as many countries in Europe and America continue to see a surge in their COVID19 positive numbers.

The Recovery Rate has improved to 93.52%. The total recovered cases stand at 83,35,109.

As many as 74.98% of the new recovered cases are contributed by ten states/UTs. With 6,620 persons recovering from COVID, Kerala saw the highest recoveries. Maharashtra registered 5,123 daily recoveries while Delhi reported 4,421 new recoveries.

Also, ten states/UTs have contributed 76.15% of the new cases. Delhi reported 6,396 cases in the 24 hours to Wednesday morning. Kerala recorded 5,792 new cases while West Bengal reported 3,654 new cases on Tuesday.

As many as 78.9% of the 474 case fatalities that have been reported in the past 24 hours are from ten states/UTs. Delhi had 20.89% of the new fatalities with 99 deaths, followed by Maharashtra and West Bengal – 68 and 52 new deaths, respectively.
