India’s present active caseload (4,43,486) is 4.85% of the total positive cases, and has been sustained below the 5% mark, the health ministry said in a bulletin Monday.

The Recovery Rate continues to be above 93% as 93.68% of all cases have recovered as of date. In the 24 hours to Monday morning, the country registered 41,024 new recoveries in the last 24 hours taking the total recovered cases to 85,62,641.

The gap between Recovered cases and Active cases is steadily increasing and presently stands at 81,19,155.

In the last 24 hours, 44,059 persons were found infected with Covid-19. India has been registering less than 50,000 cases for 16 days, since November 8. This assumes significance as several countries of the western hemisphere are witnessing a huge surge of new cases at the onset of winter.

Within India, about ten states/UT remain in focus, as 77.44% of the new recoveries are contributed by them. Kerala saw 6,227 persons recovering, Delhi reported 6,154 recoveries, and Maharashtra reported another 4,060 new recoveries in the last 24 hours.

The ten states/UTs have also contributed 78.74% of the new cases. Delhi, which has been leading the tally most of this month, reported 6,746 cases in these 24 hours. Maharashtra recorded 5,753 new cases while Kerala reported 5,254 daily cases on Sunday.

On the other hand, 15 states and UTs are reporting less than the national average of cases per million population (which is 6,623).

As many as 74.95% of the 511 case fatalities reported in the past 24 hours are concentrated in the ten states/UTs. Delhi with 121 reported deaths occupy 23.68% of new fatalities. Maharashtra saw a fatality count of 50 while West Bengal followed closely with 49 new fatalities. On the other hand, 21 States and UTs are reporting lower than the national average of deaths per million (which is 97).
