    The total number of COVID-19 cases in the country has risen to 26 lakh 47 thousand 664. The Health Ministry said there has been a spike of 57 thousand 982 cases and 941 deaths were reported in India in the last 24 hours.

    The number of active cases stand at 6 lakh 76 thousand 900. India has reported the highest single day recoveries of 57,584.

    The overall recovery rate from Covid -19 has crossed 72 per cent. The recoveries surged to 19 lakh 19 thousand 8 hundred 42.

    The death toll due to coronavirus infection climbed to 50 thousand 9 hundred 21. The case fatality rate has declined to 1.92 per cent. 

    India has set a new landmark of conducting three crore Covid tests. The Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said, expanded diagnostic lab network and facilitation for easy testing across the country have given a substantial boost.

    India is continuously stepping up it’s COVID testing capacity. In the last 24 hours, the country moved closer to testing one million samples in a day.

     With a record testing of nearly nine lakh samples in a day, the nation achieved another milestone yesterday. The Union Health Ministry informed that the remarkable feat has been achieved by rigorously following the ‘Test, Track and Treat’ strategy.

    It said that the strong resolve and determination of the Union Government along with the States and Union Territories to follow aggressive testing as the first important step in the early detection and isolation of COVID-19 cases has resulted in rapidly increasing the number of tests done per day.

    The week-wise average daily tests conducted has witnessed a sharp increase from around 2.3 lakh in the first week of July 2020 to around eight lakh in the current week.

    With eight lakh 99 thousand 864 tests yesterday, the cumulative COVID sample tests done so far in the country has further risen to reach three crore nine lakhs 41 thousand 264 tests.

    Government said that the strong determinant of this milestone has been a sustained expansion of testing labs across the country. From merely one lab in January this year, the country today has one thousand 476 labs. Out of these, 971 are government labs while the remaining 505 are private labs.
