COVID death rate in India is amongst the lowest in the world as per new reports. This is good news for Indian people. With 48,661 people testing positive for coronavirus in a day, India's COVID-19 tally climbed to 13,85,522 today, while the recoveries jumped to 8,85,576. The country's death toll rose to 32,063 with 705 fatalities being recorded in a day. The fatality from COVID currently stands at 2.3% in India as compared to the global average of about 4%.

The virus has reached the stage of community transmission and the governments are fighting hard to contain the virus. If not for the lockdowns, probably everyone might have been affected by the virus today. The government is doing it's utmost to keep the bits in check and the efforts to make the vaccine are being pumped up rapidly. 

The 2.3% is among the lowest in the world and many other advanced nations have more than a 5% fatality rate. It has also been found that Indian people's immunity is playing a key part in this. The immunity is found to be much higher than their western counterparts. 

For the first time, a record number of more than 4,40,000 tests have been conducted in a single day. With 4,42,263 samples tested in the last 24 hours, the number of Test Per Million (TPM) has further increased to 11,805 and cumulative testing to 1,62,91,331.

But there is no cause to relax. People have to be vigilant and follow government orders. Or else, they will be susceptible to the virus themselves and risk spreading the entire thing to others. 

Prime Minister has announced High throughput testing facilities on July 27. These facilities' purpose is to ramp up the testing quality and procedures in the country. They will help in early detection also. There are three such High throughput testing facilities in India. ICMR-National Institute of Cancer Prevention and Research, Noida; ICMR-National Institute for Research in Reproductive Health, Mumbai; and ICMR-National Institute of Cholera and Enteric Diseases, Kolkata.

This is day 124 of lockdown which is equivalent to the passing of four months. 

States are recording new highs in recording the coronavirus cases. People have to remain vigilant.
