With a tally of 55,62,663 cases, India's recovery rate stands at 80.86 per cent, and the fatality rate is 1.60 per cent, according to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare data. "It contributes 19.5% to the global recoveries".

There have been 5.6 million cases in total in the country, second only behind the United States.

The constant increase in recoveries has led to decrease in the actual caseload and now it comprises only 17.54 per cent of the total positive cases.

The ministry claimed that its recovery rate is the highest in the world, as the U.S. has reported 4.2 million recoveries.

"As India rides the wave of very high testing, several States/UTs have demonstrated better COVID-19 response with higher Tests Per Million (TPM) and commensurate lower Positivity Rate than the national average", the Health Ministry said. India also reported a record number of single-day recoveries with 101,468 people in 24 hours now virus-free, taking the total to 4,497,867, according to its health ministry. Till July 7, India had tested 1 crore samples and it took us 27 days to add 2 crore tests.

This is the fifth consecutive day when the recoveries have outnumbered new infections, with Ministry Secretary Prashant Bhushan saying India stands first in the world for the number of recovered cases. Of these, 9,33,185 samples were tested for coronavirus on September 21, ICMR said.

Maharashtra, which remains the state hardest hit by the pandemic, also leads recoveries with more than 20,000 patients having recovered in the past 24 hours.

These include Andaman and Nicobar Islands (94.50%), D&D and D&N (92.10%), Bihar (91.80%), Tamil Nadu (89.80%), West Bengal (87%), Andhra Pradesh (86.50%), Delhi (85%), Gujarat (84.01%), Rajasthan (83%), Telangana (82.20%), Assam (81.30%) and Odisha (81%).
