Coronavirus in India: A look at the number game

India’s COVID-19 recovery rate has been improving and stands at 48.19 per cent. The recovery rate has improved from 11.42 per cent on April 15 to 26.59 per cent on May 3 and to 38.29 per cent on May 18, the ministry said. The rate of fatality has seen a steady decline to reach 2.83 per cent as against 6.19 per cent globally.

The ministry said the relatively low death rate is attributed to the continued focus on surveillance, timely case identification and clinical management of the cases. “Two specific trends are thus noticed, while the recovery rate is increasing, on one hand, case fatality is going down on the other,” it said. India’s death toll rose to 5,394 and the number of infections climbed to 1,90,535 on Monday.


The country has registered a record single-day spike of 8,392 cases and 230 deaths till Monday 8 AM and is now the seventh worst-hit nation by the COVID-19 pandemic, after US, Brazil, Russia, UK, Spain and Italy. The number of active COVID-19 cases stood at 93,322 while 91,818 people have recovered so far, of whom 4,835 cured in the last 24 hours.
