    Govt briefs media over coronavirus situation in country

    Joint Secretary of Union Health Ministry, Lav Agarwal along with ICMR official Nivedita Gupta, briefed media over COVID-19 situation in the country. Here are the highlights from the presser:

    • 73% of COVID-19 deaths in India are people with co-morbidities.
    • 10% of India's population accounts for 50% of India's COVID19 linked deaths.
    • The fatality rate in our country is 2.82%, one of the lowest in the world.
    • Till now, 95,527 COVID19 patients have recovered. The recovery rate is now 48.07%
    • We have asked all states to analyse the trajectory of the cases in their respective states. If a state thinks that it needs to set up temporary COVID19 care centers then it must do so.
    • We have 681 laboratories that are approved for conducting COVID-19 tests- 476 in the Government sector and 205 in the private sector, as of 1st June 2020. Today, we are conducting 1 lakh 20 thousand tests every day.
    • Indian RNA extraction kits are now available in good number, RT-PCR kits by 11-12 indigenous vendors are now being used, we are now in a comfortable position as reg. testing, due to identification and hand-holding of domestic players.
    • We've been using indigenous platforms too for ramping up #COVID19 testing capacity. Truenat screening&confirmatory tests have now been validated. Outreach of testing has hence been increased since this is available in primary health centres and districts.
