Dip in active Covid cases against positive cases

New Delhi, Oct 6 (UNI) A steadily declining trend of active Covid-19 cases as a percentage of the total positive cases held out a glimmer of hope on Tuesday with active cases comprising merely 13.75 per cent
of the total positive cases of the country which stood at 9,19,023.

The dip in the percentage of active cases is commensurately supported by rising number of recovered cases. The total recovered cases stand at 56,62,490. The gap between recovered and active cases has crossed
47 lakh — 47,43,467 — and is constantly widening, an official release here said.

The higher number of recoveries has aided the national recovery rate to leap to 84.70 per cent. So far, 75,787 patients have recovered and were discharged in the past 24 hours whereas the new confirmed cases
stand at 61,267.

New recoveries have exceeded the new confirmed cases in 25 states/UTs. About 74 per cent of the new recovered cases are found concentrated in 10 states/UTs — Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, Delhi, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal. Maharashtra alone has contributed the maximum with nearly 13,000 single day recoveries.

Of the 61,267 new confirmed cases recorded in the past 24 hours, 75 per cent of the new cases were from 10 states and UTs. Maharashtra continued to report a high number of new cases with more than 10,000 cases followed by Karnataka with more than 7,000 cases.

Altogether 884 case fatalities have been reported in the past 24 hours — nearly 80 per cent concentrated in ten state/UTs of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Chhattisgarh, Delhi and Madhya Pradesh.

More than 29 per cent of the new fatalities reported are from Maharashtra (263 deaths), the release added.
