Active cases of COVID-19 in India have fallen below 10 per cent while the positivity rate of the disease was reported below 5 per cent in the last three days, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) said here on Thursday.

“Presently the active cases comprise merely 9.29 per cent of the total positive cases of the country standing at 7,15,812. The daily positivity rate has also been maintained at less than 5 per cent over the past three days indicating that the spread of infection is being effectively contained through focussed strategies and actions of the Centre and the states/UTs.

Today, the daily positivity rate is reported to be 3.8 per cent,” the official statement said. The decrease in the daily positivity rate is simultaneously mapped by the falling active cases, which continues to be under 7.5 lakh today (7,15,812). The total recovered cases are close to 69 lakhs (68,74,518). The difference between active cases and recovered cases is consistently increasing and stands at 61,58,706 today.

India reported a spike of 55,838 new COVID-19 cases and 702 deaths in the last 24 hours, taking the total case tally to 77,06,946.

There are 7,15,812 active cases while 68,74,518 people have been cured/discharged/migrated. The death toll from the disease has now climbed to 1,16,616, according to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
