For straight two weeks, India has maintained a steady trend of recording less than 10 lakh active COVID-19 cases while the number of people who have recuperated from the disease surged to 55,86,703, pushing the recovery rate to 84.34%, the Health Ministry said.
The Centre-led strategies of ‘test, track, trace and treat’ have been followed by State governments and Union Territory administrations as part of the “whole of government” approach.
Early identification of cases through aggressive and accessible countrywide testing combined with other measures such as prompt and efficient tracking and tracing of contacts have borne results, the ministry said.
The Centre has issued a standard treatment protocol that has ensured a standard of treatment and cure across various public and private hospitals and health facilities. – PTI
