The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said that in India the coronavirus outbreak is ‘limited and manageable.’ The ministry further said in a statement that measures taken by the Central government and the State government helped in reducing the COVID-19 numbers in India.
“At present, the actual caseload of COVID-19 patients is only 3,31,146,” the health ministry said. Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu registered 48.15% of the total active caseload.”There has been a steady dip in the active cases, from around 45% in mid-June 2020 to around 34.18%, as of now,” it added.
The Centre organised door-to-door surveys, tracings, and active screenings to reveal the infected numbers and provide them with proper treatment. Considering the infected numbers, containment zones were created which helped in curbing the COVID-19 infection. The statement also said that following standard care protocol the number of COVID-19 recoveries increased in India.
COVID-19 testing facilities were created inside states as well as many states improved their health infrastructures. Recovery rates in India also increased by mapping out the elderly patients especially with any co-morbidities.
