New Delhi, July 12

India's Covid caseload today reached 8,49,553 after a record 24-hour surge of 28,637 cases in a clear sign of a swiftly progressing disease that has claimed 22,674 lives so far.

The government again harped on improved recoveries saying 5,34,620 persons have been cured as against 2,92,258 on disease management. "The recovery rate has gone up to 62.93 per cent," the Health Ministry said.

Meanwhile, the Director General of Health Services has allowed pharmaceutical firms to import drugs with residual shelf life of up to 60 per cent. The relaxation has been given up to October 31 in view of the Covid pandemic that has been causing delays in clearance of import consignments.

The DGHS order came after importers urged for relaxations citing delays in processing of assignments.
