CHANDIGARH: Haryana has recorded an increase of 0.15 per cent in the recovery rate of Covid-19 cases compared to last month. Sharing this information, an official spokesperson said that on June 22 last, the recovery rate of Covid cases was 98.50 per cent which has increased to 98.65 per cent on July 17 and added that fatality rate has increased by 0.04 per cent from 1.21 per cent to 1.25 per cent in the same period.

It is also stated that the state has shown big dip in the number of fresh positive cases by almost 71 per cent. The state has recorded 146 fresh COVID infected patients on June 22 which fell to 41 on July 17.

Elaborating on the reasons for the slight rise in the fatality rate the spokesperson said that before declaring a COVID fatality an audit is conducted, thus, the deaths are reported after proper fatality audit which is conducted as per the medical guidelines. He shared that though the positivity rate has declined from 0.46 per cent on June 22, 2021 to 0.14 per cent on July 17, 2021 the fatality rate has increased as the fatalities are reported much later after ascertaining the exact cause of the death.

It is pertinent to mention here that the deaths declared officially are thoroughly verified and cannot be attributed to the particular day when its information is released in the official figures. So, when there is decline in positive cases reported on the same day, the rise in fatality rate is mainly attributed to reporting of deaths occurred in previous days after proper auditing, added the spokesperson.

He further specified that there are 318 deaths reported in 27 days from June 21, 2021 to July 17, 2021.
