The Health Ministry said 66,550 COVID-19 patients have recovered and been discharged in a span of 24 hours and asserted that the collaborative and strategic measures led by the Union Government and implemented by the states and UTs are showing results.

The record high recoveries have ensured that the active cases of coronavirus infection, the “actual caseload” of the country, comprises only 22.24 per cent of the total cases.
