COVID-19 recovery sees steep exponential rise
India’s COVID-19 recovery has witnessed a “steep exponential rise”, the Health Ministry said on Sunday, asserting that aggressive testing and prompt surveillance have led to the outcomes.
The country’s recovery rate stands at 77.77 per cent, the ministry said.
“India’s Covid-19 recoveries have witnessed a steep exponential rise - from 50,000 in May to over 36 lakh in September. A high level of more than 70,000 recoveries reported every day. Recoveries are nearly 3.8 times the active cases (under 1/4 total cases),” the ministry said in a statement.
“Focussed, collaborative, responsive and effective measures of early identification through high and aggressive testing, prompt surveillance and tracking coupled with standardised high-quality clinical care have in tandem led to these encouraging outcomes,” it added.
