Crossing the 8 lakh/day milestone of tests in a single day, India has registered a record high of 8,30,391 tests conducted in the last 24 hours in India. In pursuance of the “Test, Track and Treat” strategy, India is geared up to reach the testing capacity of 10 lakh tests per day.

The country touched another peak of highest ever single day recoveries of 56 thousand 3 hundred 83 in a single day. With this total number of recovered COVID-19 patients have touched nearly 17 lakh today.

Health Ministry said, the concerted, focussed and collaborative efforts of the Centre and the State and UT governments along with support of lakhs of frontline workers have ensured the successful implementation of testing aggressively, tracking comprehensively and treating efficiently through an array of measures including supervised home isolation and effective clinical management of severe and critical patients through the Standard of Care advised by the Centre.

With increasing number of recoveries the recovery rate has reached 70.77 per cent . The case mortality among COVID patients has further regressed to 1.96 per cent and steadily declining.
