The Union Health Ministry on Wednesday said that the country's recovery rate has soared past 70 per cent due to successful implementation of an effective containment strategy, and aggressive and comprehensive testing coupled with standardised clinical management. India has logged more than 23 lakh coronavirus cases and over 46,000 deaths. Even though the infections are racing ahead, with the country adding at least 1 lakh new cases every two days, the gap between recoveries and active cases is growing every day.
According to the ministry, "The record highest single-day recoveries at 56,110 was registered in the last 24 hours. The coordinated efforts of the Centre, state and UT governments have resulted in continuously increasing average daily recoveries. The recovery rate has reached another high of 70.38 per cent."
