India has demonstrated an exponential increase in the number of COVID-19 cumulative tests. It has crossed the landmark of 18 crores (18,02,53,315) total tests today.

9,16,951 tests were conducted in the last 24 hours.

Progressive countrywide expansion in testing infrastructure has played a crucial role in the steep rise of testing numbers. With 2316 testing labs in the country including 1201 Government laboratories and 1115 Private laboratories, the daily testing capacity has got a substantial boost.

A high level of comprehensive testing on a sustained basis has also resulted in bringing down the national positivity rate.

The cumulative rate continues to decline as total tests cross 18 crores.  The national cumulative positivity rate is 5.79% today. It has reduced from 8.93% to 5.79% in a span of five months.

15 States/UTs have a positivity Rate less than the National Average. Bihar has the lowest Positivity Rate with 1.44%.

India’s Tests per Million (TPM) stand at 130618.3 today. With the increase in testing infrastructure, the TPM has also increased exponentially.

22 States/UTs have better Tests per Million population than the national average.

13 States and UTs have lower tests per million population compared to the national figure, indicating the need for higher testing in these regions.


India also registered 19,253 new recoveries in the same duration which has led to a further contraction of the Active Caseload. India’s present active caseload of 2,24,190 consists of just 2.15% of India’s Total Positive Cases.

The total recovered cases are at 10,056,651 todayThe Recovery Rate has improved to 96.41%. The gap between Recovered cases and Active cases is steadily increasing and presently stands at 9,832,461.

78.89% of the new recovered cases are contributed by ten States/UTs.

Kerala saw 5,324 persons recovering from COVID. Maharashtra and West Bengal reported 2,890 and 1,136 new recoveries, respectively.

18,222 cases were registered in the last 24 hours.

76.32% of the 228 case fatalities that have been reported in the past 24 hours are from Seven States/UTs.
