33% recovery rate in state, highest in country: ACS

Jaipur: Corona cases may be rising but there is a silver lining for Rajasthan. It has maximum ratio of patient recovery in the country; death ratio is low and the rate of doubling cases is low than the national average.

According to additional chef secretary (health) Rohit Kumar Singh 33% corona patients in state have recovered, which is highest in the country. Rajasthan’s death rate of 1.87% is less than the national average of 3.13% and cases have been doubling in 11 days in Rajasthan than 9.2 days at national level.

Singh attributed this success to aggressive testing. Rajasthan has been conducting 1173 tests per 10 lakh compared to 450 at national level. “This is more than four times the national average,” he said.

Feather in the cap was recovery of two 90-year-old elderly people, who in less than a week recovered and were discharged from SMS hospital. The ACS dismissed reports of less testing in Ramganj.

“The contagion there is only in a limited area; therefore, our focus is on saving people’s lives. We have divided the area in to clusters for targeted sampling.

We have included elderly, direct contact persons and people already suffering from other serious illness,” he said. He clarified that if a worker tests positive, no action would be taken against factory owner and they are only asked to ensure distancing.
