Bhopal: The national recovery rate of patients suffering from coronavirus is 93.72 per cent, while the recovery rate in Madhya Pradesh is 91.45 per cent. Madhya Pradesh has reported 1,773 corona-positive cases taking its tally to 198,284 and the toll from the disease is now 3,197 with 14 new deaths.

Medical experts, however, say the recovery rate in the state is less than the national recovery rate because of the increasing number of positive cases in Madhya Pradesh. But still, the recovery rate of around 90 per cent is not bad from Madhya Pradesh’s point of view. Night curfew has already been imposed in the worst-infected districts to have control over mass gatherings at parties and functions.

Hamidia Hospital medical superintendent Dr ID Chaurasia said, “There’s no big difference between the recovery rate in the state and the national rate. It’s not a matter of huge concern for the public in the state. Madhya Pradesh’s recovery rate will improve further as the health department and the entire machinery are working according to guidelines to curb the spread of corona.”
