The Health Ministry informed that enhanced countrywide medical infrastructure, implementation of the Centre’s Standard Treatment Protocol by the States and Union Territories and total dedication and commitment of doctors, paramedics and frontline workers have led to a persistent increase in the number of total recoveries in the country.

The Health Ministry further said that this has also led to a commensurate dip in the fatality rate which stands at 1.44 per cent. The number of countrywide fatalities recorded in 24 hours has slipped below the 150 marks with 137 deaths being reported since yesterday.

The Health Ministry has said that a total of seven thousand 704 sessions of COVID-19 vaccination was conducted in 25 States and Union Territories in which 1,48,266 beneficiaries were vaccinated on the third day of the launch of the world's largest COVID-19 vaccination drive on 16th of this month.
