India reports 16,156 COVID-19 cases, 733 deaths in 24 hours; toll spike due to Kerala backlog

New Delhi/IBNS: India reported 16,156 COVID-19 cases while the toll went up by 733 in the last 24 hours, the Union Health Ministry stated Thursday.

The spike in daily toll is, however, largely contributed by the backlog reported in the southern state of Kerala.

Among 733, 622 are reported alone by Kerala as the state has added backlog deaths, which were earlier not reported due to lack of documents.

The southern state has reported only 93 deaths due to the virus in the last 24 hours.

The recovery rate in the country now stands at 98.20%, the highest since Mar 2020, with 17,095 COVID-19 patients recovering in the last 24 hours.

The active cases now account for 0.47%, the lowest since Mar 2020.
