India sees single-day rise of 2,323 COVID-19 cases, active cases dip to 14,996

New Delhi: India recorded 2,323 fresh Covid-19 infections on Saturday, while the number of active cases came down to 14,996, according to the official data updated by the Union health ministry today.

The death toll climbed to 5,24,348 with 25 fatalities. The active cases comprise 0.03 percent of the total infections. According to the Ministry, the national Covid-19 recovery rate was recorded at 98.75 percent. A decrease of 48 cases has been recorded in the active Covid-19 caseload in a span of 24 hours.

To accelerate the coverage of those vaccinated against Covid-19, the Union Health Ministry on Friday announced it will launch a two-month-long door-to-door campaign in June and July. The campaign will give preference to eligible senior citizens to be inoculated with a booster dose.

India's COVID-19 tally had crossed the 20-lakh mark on August 7, 2020, 30 lakh on August 23, 40 lakh on September 5, and 50 lakh on September 16. It went past 60 lakh on September 28, 70 lakh on October 11, crossed 80 lakh on October 29, 90 lakh on November 20, and surpassed the one-crore mark on December 19.

The country crossed the grim milestone of two crores on May 4 and three crores on June 23 last year. The 20 new fatalities include 17 from Kerala and two from Uttar Pradesh and one from Delhi.

A total of 5,24,323 deaths have been reported so far in the country including 1,47,856 from Maharashtra, 69,457 from Kerala, 40,106 from Karnataka, 38,025 from Tamil Nadu, 26,199 from Delhi, 23,516 from Uttar Pradesh, and 21,203 from West Bengal.

The ministry stressed that more than 70 percent of the deaths occurred due to comorbidities.

"Our figures are being reconciled with the Indian Council of Medical Research," the ministry said on its website, adding that the state-wise distribution of figures is subject to further verification and reconciliation.
