India continues to maintain active cases below 7 lakh for second day
India continues to report a trend of steadily declining active cases. The active cases are less than 7 lakh for the second consecutive day and stand at 6,80,680.
The active cases now comprise only 8.71% of the total positive cases of the country. The active cases are on a continuous decline on a daily basis.

The declining trend of the active cases is complemented by the unbroken rising number of recovered cases. The total recovered cases have crossed the 70 lakh mark and stand at 70,16,046. The national Recovery Rate has further improved to 89.78%.
61% of the Total Recovered Cases are from 6 States/UT viz. Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi. 77% of the new recovered cases are observed to be concentrated in 10 States/UTs.
Maharashtra has contributed the maximum with more than 13,000 single day recovery. 53,370 new confirmed cases were recorded in the last 24 hours. 80% of the new cases are from 10 States and UTs.
