Even with such a high level of testing, the positivity has remained low i.e. 8.81% compared to the weekly national average i.e. 8.84%.
Aggressive testing has led to early identification and isolation of COVID-19 positive cases.
This coupled with efficient clinical treatment brings the Fatality Rate down.
In a tweet, the ministry stated that focused implemention of Centre-led strategies has ensured prompt identification, timely isolation and effective clinical treatment, leading to reduced Case Fatality Rate. 30 states/UTs performed better than the national average.
