Actual caseload of Covid patients in India at 3,31,146, is 1/3rd of total cases

New Delhi, Jul 16 (UNI) Targeted measures have contributed to a steady decline in the number of active Coronavirus cases and the actual caseload of Covid-19 patients in the country is only 3,31,146 contributing to a little more than a third (34.18 per cent) of total cases detected so far.

A total of 20,783 people cured of Covid in the past 24 hours has taken the total number of recovered cases among Covid-19 patients to 6,12,814. The gap between recovered patients and active Covid-19 cases has further increased to 2,81,668.

From mid-June 2020 after crossing the 50 per cent mark in Recovery Rate, there is a steady increase in the recovered patients and decline in the number of active cases. So far, 63.25 per cent of the Covid-19 patients have recovered. Simultaneously, there has been a steady dip in the active cases, from around 45 per cent in mid-June 2020 to around 34.18 per cent, as of now.

Due to proactive measures of containment including house-to-house survey, perimeter control activities, timely contact tracing and surveillance of containment zones, the actual case load of Covid-19 has remained limited and manageable in the country. Alongside, aggressive testing, timely diagnosis, and effective clinical management of the moderate and severe cases through a well implemented standard of care protocol have substantially increased their chances of recovery.

The collaborative strategy among Centre and the states has also ensured that the growth of Covid cases in restricted to pockets in the country.

Only two states, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, constitute 48.15 per cent of the country’s total active case load. Of the total 36 states and UTs, only 10 states constitute 84.62 per cent of the total active case load. The Centre continues to handhold these states in matters of containment and effective clinical management of the affected persons, an official release here said.

A graded, pre-emptive approach under the 'Whole of Government' strategy has been adopted by Government of India along with the states/UTs for prevention, containment and management of Covid-19 which are regularly reviewed and monitored at the highest level.

The hospital infrastructure to treat Covid-19 consists of 1,381 Dedicated Covid Hospitals in Category I, 3,100 Dedicated Covid Healthcare Centres in Category II, 10,367 Covid Care Centres in Category III. They together have a capacity of 46,666 ICU beds.
