Health secretary Rajesh Bhushan is addressing the media on COVID-19.
India has recorded the highest number of single day recoveries. More than 1 lakh (1,01,468) new recoveries have been registered in the last 24 hours in the country. The trend of very high number of single day recoveries has sustained for the past four consecutive days, Mr. Bhushan says.
19.5 per cent of the world recoveries are in India, he adds.
He credits the high recovery rate to early detection, early isolation and increased health infrastructure in the country. – The Hindu
