A Covid first for India: Recoveries beat active cases

The number of recoveries has exceeded the total number of active COVID-19 cases in India for the first time, even when the country reported nearly 10,000 new instances of the infection, bringing the cumulative count to more than 2.86 lakh cases.

If the new infection progresses rapidly, the covid recovery order may reverse. And while Maharashtra is now approaching good news on the recovery vs. active case front, Delhi is in bad news.

The surge in cases in recent days has prompted the Union health ministry to send core teams to help state health officials review public health measures.
