India’s Active Covid Caseload Drops To 4.03 Lakh

New Delhi: India’s total COVID-19 active caseload dropped to 4,03,248 – the lowest in 138 days – as 36,011 fresh coronavirus infections were recorded against 41,970 recoveries in the last 24 hours.

According to the Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, India has reported more daily recoveries than the daily new cases during the past 24 hours. The trend of more daily recoveries than the daily cases has led to a continuous contraction of India’s Active Caseload which presently consists of just 4.18% of the Total Positive Cases.

While 36,011 persons in India were found to be infected with COVID, 41,970 new recoveries were registered during the same period. The new recoveries have led to a net decline of 6,441 in the Total Active cases, the Ministry added.

“New cases per million population in India in the last seven days are 186. It is one of the lowest in the world. The difference in New Recoveries outnumbering New Cases has also improved the Recovery Rate to 94.37% today.

The total recovered cases have crossed 91 lakh (91,00,792). The gap between Recovered Cases and Active Cases, that is steadily increasing is nearing 87 lakh (86,97,544) today,” it added.

76.6% of the new recovered cases are observed to be concentrated in 10 States/UTs.

Maharashtra has reported the maximum number of single day recoveries with 5,834 newly recovered cases. Kerala follows closely with 5,820 new recoveries. Delhi registered 4,916 new recoveries, the Minisrty said.
