Covid-19 second wave is severe in India but with almost 99% recovery rate & with mere 1.12% fatality rate: This means almost 99 percent of Covid-19 patients are recovering and surviving the menacing illness caused by several variants of SARS-CoV-2 — the novel coronavirus behind this pandemic. Times are tough but this still is the best news in an utterly bad Covid-19 situation here in India.
The novel coronavirus is still raging across India but three of the biggest Covid-19 hotspots are showing signs of plateauing – Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Delhi. At the national level, India continues to see new peaks every day. One day figure of over 350 thousand fresh Covid-19 cases pushed the coronavirus caseload to over 17.3 million of these Covid-19 cases, 195 thousand people have lost their lives due to complications arising out of the illness. This means, India has a Covid-19 case fatality rate (CFR) of 1.12 per cent. The rest are recoveries or survivors. At present, India has a 98.88 per cent recovery rate for Covid-19. Also, most of the patients (the figure varies from 85 per cent to over 90 per cent in different states) don’t require hospitalisation. They recover from Covid-19 in home isolation.
India’s performance in handling current wave of Covid-19 as reflected in statistics:
Death per million population:
Brazil 1.4 ml
In percentage terms death rate (as a percentage of the infected population dead)
2.12% in the world,
1.79% in the US,

2.72% in Brazil,
1.88% in France,
2.27% in Russia,
2.89% in UK,
3.01% in Italy,
2.24% in Spain,
2.5% in Germany,
2.16% in Argentina,

Considering the critically ill population out of the total infected Covid19 patients,
Number of tests conducted as % of population
The proportion of people infected who have recovered is an indication of the overall performance of the Covid-19 control since it reflects the efforts of the Government as well as the cooperation of the people and the role of health infrastructure in the goal towards recovery. As a % of total infected
Russia 92%, and
India’s covid recovery rate is closer to World. Yes by sheer numbers India is under immense pressure but still we are fighting a strong battle. Hopefully soon we all will overcome these tough times.
