The number of the recovered COVID-19 cases continues to increase steadily.

As a result of this, the recovery rate has further increased to 60.81%.

Presently, there are 2,35,433 active cases and all are under medical supervision.

The efforts to expand the testing labs network in the country have led to their numbers increasing very day. There are as many as 1087 labs in the country, including 780 labs in the government sector and 307 private labs. These include:

• Real-Time RT PCR based testing labs: 584 (Govt: 366 + Private: 218)

During the last 24 hours 2,42,383 samples have been tested, pushing the cumulative number of tests to 95,40,132.
