India’s active caseload 4.95 pc of total cases; recovery rate improves to 93.58 pc

New Delhi, November 19

As many as 48,493 people recuperated from COVID-19 in a day bringing India’s active caseload on Thursday to below 5 per cent of the total infections as daily recoveries remained higher than the single-day rise in cases for the last 47 days.

The national recovery rate has improved to 93.58 per cent with 83,83,602 recovered cases which exceeded active cases by 79,40,299, the Health Ministry said.

“This trend of more daily recoveries than the daily cases has led to a continuous contraction of India’s active caseload. It has ensured that India’s present active caseload of 4,43,303 consists of just 4.95 per cent of the country’s total cases,” it said.
