India on Monday witnessed 57,469 coronavirus recoveries, that took the total number of recoveries across the country to more than 23 lakh. Recovery of 23,38,035patients has been made possible because of the effective implementation of the policy of Testing aggressively, tracking comprehensively through surveillance and contact tracing and treating efficiently.

The focus on Standard of Care protocol including use of non-invasive oxygen, better-skilled doctors in the ICUs and hospitals, and improved ambulance services have led to improved recovery rate among the severe and critical COVID patients. That in-home isolation, being medically supervised and monitored, are also recovering at a fast pace.

With the recovery of 57,469 cases in the last 24 hours, India's Recovery Rate amongst the COVID-19 patients has crossed 75 per cent reflecting that the number of patients recovering is on a steady rise over the past several months.

India has posted more than 16 lakh recoveries than the active cases.  The record high recoveries have ensured that the actual caseload of the country which comprises of active cases, has reduced and currently comprises only 22.88 per cent of the total positive cases. Effective clinical management of the patients in the ICUs has been instrumental in keeping the Case Fatality Rate low and on a steady downward trajectory. It has further dipped to 1.85 per cent on Monday.

A major role in India's substantial rate of recovering and declining case fertility rate has been played by the 'National e-ICU on COVID-19 Management' which is being conducted by AIIMS New Delhi in active collaboration with the Ministry of Health.

The National e-ICU is held twice a week (Tuesday and Friday) and covers doctors of COVID hospitals in states and answers their queries related to treatment. So far 14 such National e-ICUs have been held covering 117 hospitals in 22 states across the country.
