Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan on Saturday (August 22, 2020) said while India has the lowest fatality rate due to coronavirus COVID-19, it probably has the best recovery rate in the world.
"As far as COVID-19 numbers are concerned, our fatality rate, 1.87 per cent, is really low and we have probably the best recovery rate (75 per cent) in the world. We have around 1,500 testing labs now. It is a great achievement in itself," Health Minister Harsh Vardhan was quoted as saying news agency ANI.
