Currently, the nation's recovery rate from the Coronavirus has reached to 82% providing relief for the country. It is also noted that the new positive cases registered have dropped to 70,589, according to Union Health Ministry. 

But, the nationwide tally has crossed the 61 Lakh mark. According to the Union health ministry update on Tuesday, there are 9,47,576 active cases, while 51,01,398 patients have been cured or discharged from hospitals.

The country recorded 776 fatalities in the last 24 hours, which pushed the death toll to 96,318, according to the health ministry.

But the health ministry has shared positive statistics amid the grim picture. It said that close to 100 percent increase in recoveries has been witnessed in India in the past month.

The ministry also informed that over 82 percent of the total patients have been recovered and discharged.

“India has witnessed close to a 100 percent increase in recoveries in the past month. More than 82 percent of total cases (exceeding 50 lakhs) recovered and discharged. Active cases (lower than 10 lakhs) a small proportion (less than 1/5th) of total cases. The commendable feat has been achieved through enhanced medical infrastructure, implementation of the standard treatment protocol, full dedication, and commitment of doctors, paramedics, and frontline workers,” the ministry tweeted on Tuesday.

Yesterday, it had said that recovered cases have outpaced active cases by over five times.

It has also launched a web portal that will provide all important information on Covid-19, vaccine development, ongoing clinical trials and progress made in this area locally and globally.

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has also launched the National Clinical Registry for Covid-19 that will collect systematic data on clinical signs and symptoms, laboratory investigations, management protocols, the clinical course of the coronavirus disease, its spectrum, and outcomes of patients.

The decline in new cases being registered may be a sign that immunity may be developed in people. The world is waiting for an active vaccine to be released to the public so that things can get back to normal soon.
