With a high level of recoveries, India is maintaining its global position as the country with the maximum number of recovered COVID-19 patients, said the Ministry of Health on Friday.
“With high levels of recoveries (more than 52L), India is maintaining its global position as the country with the maximum number of Recovered COVID-19 patients. India has crossed a landmark milestone. Active Cases have been sustained below the 10L mark for 10 days in an unbroken chain,” Ministry of Health tweeted.
