nCoV: India’s Case Fatality Rate at 2.15%, lowest since lockdown 1.0

New Delhi: India’s Case Fatality Rate stands at 2.15 per cent on Saturday the lowest since Lockdown 1.0 started.
The total number of recovered cases is nearly 11 lakh. With 36,569 patients discharged in the past 24 hours, the total recoveries have jumped to 10,94,374. The recovery rate inched up to 64.53 per cent among Covid-19 patients.
With such consistent increase in recoveries, the gap between recovered patients and active Covid-19 cases currently stands at 5,29,271; 5,65,103 active cases are under medical supervision.
The Case Fatality Rate (CFR) has been continuously reducing from around 3.33 per cent in mid-June and is testimony to the focused, pre-emptive, “Test Track Treat” strategy of the Centre along with the state/UT governments.
Emphasis on early detection through aggressive testing and effective clinical management of the hospitalised cases have resulted in the continuously falling CFR indicating that India has been able to successfully contain the fatality rate of Covid-19.
Along with this, successful implementation of effective containment strategy, aggressive testing and standardised clinical management protocols based on a comprehensive Standard of Care approach have resulted in a consistent addition of more than 30,000 recoveries/day.
The three-tier hospital infrastrucutre with seamless patient management has ensured prompt triaging and treatment. As on today, there are 1,488 dedicated Covid Hospitals with 2,49,358 isolation beds, 31,639 ICU beds and 1,09,119 oxygen supported beds, 16,678 ventilators.
