Covid 19 Updates: India third worst hit countries in the world
Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) neared the 3 million confirmed cases in India, as it remained the third worst-hit country in the world after the US and Brazil, the Union health ministry’s data showed on Saturday.
The health ministry also said India has crossed the milestone of conducting 1 million tests every day to detect Sars-Cov-2, the virus that causes the coronavirus disease, which experts say is important to know the exact disease burden.
The ministry tweeted that “Early identification through TESTING, prompt & effective TREATMENT through supervised home isolation and quality medical care, & innovative graded policy measures have resulted in almost 100% increase in recovered cases in the last 21 days.”
India’s case fatality rate (CFR) “is maintained below the global average”, the health ministry said on Friday. “It is on a continuous positive slide and currently stands at 1.89%,” it had said.
