New Delhi/IBNS: The Indian government on Monday said 4,835 COVID-19 patients have been cured in the past 24 hours.

The government also said the recovery rate from the disease in the country now stands at 48.19 percent.

"The recovery rate on 18th May was 38.29 %. On 3rd May it was 26.59 %. On 15th April it was 11.42 %," read the statement issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

A total of 91,818 patients have been cured of COVID-19. 

Speaking on the fatality rate of the disease, the Ministry said "Presently there are 93,322 active cases in the country which are under active medical supervision. The case fatality rate is 2.83%. On 18th May, the case fatality rate was 3.15%. On 3rd May, it was 3.25 %."

"On 15th April it was 3.30 %. A steady decline can be seen in the case fatality rate in the country. The relatively low death rate is attributed to the continued focus on surveillance, timely case identification and clinical management of the cases," the Ministry added.

Speaking on the trend of the disease in India, the Ministry said, "Two specific trends are thus noticed, while the recovery rate is increasing on one hand, case fatality is going down on the other."
