The number of active cases remained below 5 lakh for the ninth consecutive day. There are 4,43,303 active cases of coronavirus infection in the country which comprises 4.95 percent of the national caseload, the data stated.
The total number of recoveries has surged to 83,83,603, pushing the national recovery rate to 93.58 percent. The COVID-19 case fatality rate stands at 1.47 percent.
According to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), a total of 12,85,08,389 samples were tested for COVID-19 up to November 18, of these, 10,28,203 samples were tested yesterday.
On Wednesday, the Union Health Ministry said that India has continued the unbroken trend of the daily new recoveries outpacing the daily new additions for more than 1.5 months.
