In the last 24 hours, 3875 people have been infected with COVID-19 in India. 194 people have died. At the same time, 1399 people have been recovered. At present, the recovery rate in the country is 28.18%. The number of cases in India has been steadily rising but the speed is slow according to the Union Health Ministry.
Lob Agarwal, the Joint Secretary, Union Health Ministry, said this at a press conference on Tuesday. He was asked that the doubling rate of the victim was 3.4 days before the lockdown. At present, it has increased to 12 days. But, at that time 100-150 people were being infected every day. It is more than 2000 people at present. In the last 24 hours, it is about 4000 people. So even if the doubling rate increases, the number of victims also increases.
Lob Agarwal reiterated that the number of testing in the country has increased a lot. The more the testing, the more number of infected people will be. The reason is there are many people who have no symptoms in their body. But they are infected. They can be found only after more testing. The Union Ministry of Health has already explained with a statistical report that after 10 lakhs test, the number of infected people in India is less than in the United States, Italy and Britain.
Presently, the graph may be down in some countries, but in India, this graph has never increased much. The rate of increase in the number of victims has always been low. As a result, a stable graph has been seen in India from the very beginning.
At the same time, the rate of recovery is increasing day by day. Lob Agarwal told that the number of people recovering from Covid-19 is increasing due to proper treatment. In his opinion, this rate is showing a positive sign for India’s battle against the disease.
