At a press conference yesterday, Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan underlined that India’s Covid-19 deaths per million population at 58 is also amongst the lowest in the world and the global average is 118. Asserting that there has been a progressive rise in India’s Covid-19 testing, he said, “We took 27 days to double our testing from 1 crore to 2 crores.

However, we took only 10 days to jump from 4 crore tests to 5 crore tests.” Highlighting the high number of recoveries in India, Bhushan said more than 38.5 lakhs patients have recovered and the number was among the highest in the world with Johns Hopkins University data stating that India has the highest recoveries.

Talking about India’s Covid-19 fight, he said, “If you look at the countries of Europe and the United States, they had a peak and then they came down and during that peak whether it was Spain, the UK or Sweden or Italy, there were the huge number of mortalities.”

“We distributed the curve in such a way that we did not have those large number of deaths and that was attributable scientifically because of a very effective lockdown that was imposed in the month’s late March, April and May. So, we did not really have a huge peak from that perspective,” he added.
