New Delhi, January 11

A declining number of fresh COVID-19 cases and a high rate of recovery have resulted in a continuous fall in the country’s active caseload, which accounts for only 2.13 per cent of the total infections, the Health Ministry said on Monday.

The number of daily new fatalities has also declined substantially in the country. On Monday, less than 170 such deaths were recorded after 229 days, the Ministry said.

“Declining new cases and high rate of recovery have in tandem resulted in continuous fall in the country’s active caseload on a sustained basis,” the Ministry said.

India’s total active caseload has fallen to 2.25 lakh, which accounts for just 2.13 per cent of the total number of coronavirus cases in the country.

A total of 16,959 COVID-19 patients have recovered in a span of 24 hours. This has led to a net decline of 809 from the active caseload, the Ministry said.

The total number of recovered cases in the country stands at 1,00,92,909.

“The gap between recoveries and active cases, that is steadily increasing, is nearing 99 lakh and presently stands at 98,70,383,” the Ministry said.
