India’s Covid tally nears 74L, nearly 65L cured

With a spike of 63,371 coronavirus cases and 895 deaths in 24 hours, India’s tally reached 73,70,469 cases, the Union Health Ministry data said on Friday.

Out of these, 64,53,779 have been discharged, 8,04,528 are currently active while 1,12,161 lost the battle against the pandemic.

According to the Ministry, India continues to have one of the lowest deaths per million population globally, presently pegged at 80.

“Some states and UTs are performing better and reporting much lower deaths per million population than the national average,” it said in a statement.

While the recovery rate stands at 87.56 percent, the fatality rate is 1.52 percent, the data from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said.

India’s doubling time has sharply increased to 70.4 days. This indicates a substantial fall in the daily new cases and the consequent increase in time taken to double the total cases.

Maharashtra continues to be the worst-hit with a total of 15,64,615 cases including 41,196 deaths; followed by Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, and Delhi.

According to the data from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), India conducted 10,28,622 sample tests in a single day on Thursday, taking the total number of samples tested so far to 9,22,54,927.
