New Delhi: As many as 57,584 patients were discharged following their cure in the past 24 hours taking India's Recovery Rate past the 72 per cent milestone and registering the highest single day recoveries.

Even though there has been a spurt in new cases of infection, India has steadily been marching on the road to enhanced recoveries registering the highest single day recoveries.
 
With more patients recovering and being discharged from hospitals and home isolation (in case of mild and moderate cases), India's Covid-19 recoveries -- at 19,19,842 -- are nearly reaching 2 million, an official release here said.
 
Due to this, the difference between the recovered and active cases stands at 12,42,942 today.
 
The actual caseload of the country, that is the Active Cases -- 6,76,900 on date -- has reduced and currently comprises only 25.57 per cent of the total positive cases. As a result of early identification of cases, there has been timely and prompt isolation of mild and moderate cases and hospitalisation of the severe and critical cases thereby leading to timely and effective management of cases.
 
The Case Fatality Rate dipped today to 1.92 per cent.
 
Coordinated implementation of an effective containment strategy, aggressive and comprehensive testing coupled with standardised clinical management of the critical patients combined with India following a Standard of Care protocol for the differentiated categorisation of Covid-19 patients -- mild, moderate and severe --  have yielded positive results.
