COVID-19 pandemic: Number of recoveries exceed active cases for first time

The number of recovered COVID-19 patients has exceeded the total active cases in India for the first time on Wednesday, according to the Union Health Ministry data. India reported close to 10,000 new instances of the infection in the last 24 hours till Wednesday, pushing the country’s cumulative caseload to over 2.7 lakh.
The country has recorded 279 new fatalities due to COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, taking the death toll to 7,745. The number of active cases in the country stands at 1,33,632, while 1,35,205 people have recovered, and one patient has migrated, the ministry said.
“Thus, 48.99 percent of the patients have recovered so far,” an official said. Dr Neeraj Gupta, a professor in the Department of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at the Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi, said the data shows that more and more people are recovering which is as per global trends that 80 percent is likely to have mild disease and make 100 percent recovery.

“This should provide hope to the people of India at large who are having a mortal fear of the disease. But then this should not make them complacent and people should follow social distancing and sanitization guidelines,” Gupta said.

As per global evidence, 80 percent of COVID-19 cases are mild cases, while the remaining 20 percent may develop complications that would require hospitalization. Out of the hospitalized cases of COVID-19, only 5 percent may require ICU care, an official said.
