The number of Covid-19 positive patients are skyrocketing day by day meanwhile the daily detection of new coronavirus positive cases has been hanging around the one lakh mark for the last two weeks. However, this time not the number of new positive cases but the number of recoveries has crossed the number.
On Monday, there were more recoveries as compared to the number of new positive cases. The number of new positive cases stood around 75,000 while 1.01 lakh Covid-19 patients were recovered from the disease on Monday.
According to the experts, it is not the new cases that decreased on Monday but it is the result of the less number of tests that were carried out on Sunday.
On Sunday, a very less number of tests were conducted. The total number of tests that were conducted on Sunday stood around 7.3 lakh only as compared to 11 to 12 lakh samples on other days. Thus, somewhat more recoveries than new cases.
Rise in the recovery rate?
However, one just can’t neglect that there is a gradual rise in the recovery rate from the last few days. These recoveries remain unaffected from the number of tests that were conducted. This jump in the recovery is possible because some unaccounted recoveries from previous days are getting added up in the data being released by the state governments.
This revered trend of more recoveries than new cases also tells that the active cases in the country have dropped below one million marks.
The experts further say that this revered trend is just a temporary phenomenon and the number of new cases will surpass the number of recoveries during the ‘weekdays’. The number of new cases in a day may go back in the 90,000s or the one-lakh mark. The positivity trend bar among the patients went up during the last ten days.
