“The highest ever single-day recoveries of 73,642 were recorded on September 6 and currently, the recovery rate now is 77.23 per cent. This has also led to the declining Case Fatality Rate (CFR), which stands at a new low of 1.73 per cent,” Ministry said in a statement.

The Health Ministry further said that India has posted more than 22.6 lakh recoveries than the active cases which stand at 846,395.
