India reports higher number of new recoveries than new COVID-19 cases for several consecutive days

New Delhi: New recoveries in India have exceeded the new cases for several successive days during the period of the past nine days.

There has been a steep increase in number of recovered patients.

The single day recoveries on an average have been more than 90,000.

"92,043 recoveries have been registered in the last 24 hours in the country, while the number of new confirmed cases stands at 88,600," read a government statement.

"With this, the total number of recoveries are close to 50 lakhs (49,41,627). Maintaining its upward trend, the national Recovery Rate presently stands at 82.46 percent," it said.

This high rate of daily recoveries has sustained India's leading global position as the country with maximum number of recovered cases.

As India records more recoveries than the new cases, the gap between percentage recovered cases and the percentage active cases is continuously increasing.

The gap between the recovered cases and active cases is nearly 40 lakh (39,85,225).

The number of active patients has been below 10 lakh for several successive days. The active caseload is merely 15.96% of the total positive cases and is consistently declining.
