India's coronavirus tally over 93.51 lakh after 41,322 test positive in 24 hours
The coronavirus cases in India climb over 93.51 lakh after 41,322 people tested positive for the Covid-19 infection in the past 24 hours. India's coronavirus caseload has now mounted to 93,51,110, according to the Union health ministry.
India also registered 485 deaths due to the coronavirus, taking the death toll in the country to 1,36,200. Currently, India has 4,54,940 active cases of coronavirus, the health ministry said on Saturday.
In the past 24 hours, 41,452 patents were discharged across the country, taking the total recovered cases to 87,59,969.
The Centre on Friday told the Supreme Court that ten States have almost 77 percent of the active coronavirus caseload of the country with Maharashtra and Kerala contributing almost 33 percent of the overall actives cases.
It said that most of the countries across the world are observing the resurgence of the coronavirus cases and given the size and density of population in India, the country has done remarkably well in restricting the spread.
The Centre pointed out that as of November 24, India stands at 9.2 million coronavirus cases, with over 0.44 million active cases, which make up only 4.75 percent of the current cumulative cases.
“Our recovery rate has gone up to 93.76 percent, with almost 8.6 million recoveries made. The average cases per day have reduced by 50 percent since the past 8 weeks. Currently, only 2 two states have more than 50,000 cases and they contribute to almost 33 percent of the overall active cases,” the Ministry of Home Affairs said in its affidavit.
