India's COVID-19 recovery rate improves, touches 61.53%: Govt

New Delhi: India witnessed a sharp recovery of 61.53 percent COVID-19 infected patients in the past 24 hours, government said.

The number of samples being tested for detection of COVID-19 is substantially growing every day, the government said in a statement.

During the last 24 hours, 2,62,679 samples have been tested of which more than 53,000 samples have been tested in private labs.

The cumulative number of samples tested, as of now is 1,04,73,771.

As a result, the tests per million today stand at 7180.

This is because of the sharply focussed “Test, Trace, Treat” strategy of the central Government, in coordination with the States/UTs.

A crucial component in the appreciable growth in the COVID-19 testing is the increased number of diagnostic labs across the country. With 795 labs in the government sector and 324 private labs, there are as many as 1119 labs in the country.

During the last 24 hours, a total of 16,883 COVID-19 patients have been cured, taking the cumulative figure of recovered cases to 4,56,830 so far.

Presently, there are 2,64,944 active cases and all are under medical supervision.
