The highest recovery rate is in Delhi at 97%, followed by UP, Bihar and Haryana at 94% each. Maharashtra, Telangana, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and MP have a recovery rate of around 93%.
The worst, however, is in Uttarakhand where the recovery rate is a low of 80.7%. Only north-eastern states of Mizoram, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Sikkim have a far worse recovery rate ranging between 70-76%. Though it is improving in Karnataka and others like J&K, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Manipur, Odisha and Assam, they are still far away from the comfort zone with recovery rate ranging between 80-84%, lower than the national average of 89%.
A better recovery rate is also indicative of milder cases in the state and lower fatalities. This could be the result of these states increasing their testing, tracking and treatment. Bihar, Jharkhand and UP have largely been successful in containment efforts with their daily positivity rate, total confirmed cases per 100 tests, declining to below 5% from double digit last month. The better ones with declining positivity rate include Haryana, Delhi, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Telangana.
The daily positivity rate is still on the higher side in Goa, Maharashtra, Kerala, Sikkim, Chandigarh, Nagaland, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal – ranging between 11-19%.
