With 8,049 COVID-19 patients cured in the last 24 hours, the recovery rate has become more than 50%. A total of 164,803 patients, so far, have been cured of COVID-19.
Currently, the recovery rate is 50.7%. This indicates that of all the cases of COVID-19, half of them have recovered from the disease. Timely case identification and proper clinical management has been the road to recovery.
Currently, 150,432 active cases are under medical supervision. Though the total death is going to touch 10,000 mark soon. As of now Death toll sand at 9,247.
However we need to keep one thing in mind that the 50% recovery rate means half a number of people recovered out of total detected case. This percentage simply didn’t consider those people who is not detected yet.
