With over 90,000 recoveries in the past 24 hours, the recovery rate from COVID-19 in India reached a high of 82.46 per cent. With this, the number of new recoveries is nearing the 50 lakh mark.

According to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare’s data, around 92, 043 patients were either recovered, discharged or migrated in the past 24 hours taking the total number to 49,41,627.

The data suggested that out of the total recoveries, around 76 per cent came from the 10 states and union territories of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Odisha, Delhi, Chhattisgarh, Kerala and West Bengal.

Out of these states, the maximum of recoveries came from Maharashtra with 23,644 people recovering in the past 24 hours. Andhra Pradesh followed Maharashtra with 9,125 recoveries followed by 6,546 of Uttar Pradesh and 5,612 of Tamil Nadu. Karnataka also recorded 5,417 recoveries in the past 24 hours.

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

The number of active patients has been below 10 lakh for several successive days, the ministry said further. A number of 9,87,861 tests were conducted in the past 24 hours.
