NEW DELHI || India’s Case Fatality Rate (CFR) is progressively falling and currently, it is 2.25%, an official statement of the union health ministry said on Tuesday. India continues its march as a country with one of the lowest fatality rates in the world, it added.
This achievement, it was claimed, was the result of effective implementation of containment strategy combined with house-to-house surveys, aggressive testing and standardised clinical management protocols based on holistic Standard of Care approach which ensured that hospitals were left unburdened with supervised home isolation for the asymptomatic patients.
The CFR has reduced from around 3.33% in mid-June to 2.25% today. For the fifth day in a row, India has seen more than 30,000 recoveries per day.
The Recovery Rate has seen a sharp increase from around 53% in mid-June to more than 64% as on Tuesday, the government claimed. With 35,176 patients discharged in the last 24 hours, the total recoveries stand at 9,52,743.
With improving daily recovery number, the gap between the recovered cases & the active cases is also persistently increasing. Presently, it is 4,55,755. This means the actual active caseload is presently 4,96,988 and all are under medical supervision.
