India's COVID-19 case fatality rate has declined to 1.75 per cent, the Union Health Ministry said on Thursday.
Focus on improved and effective clinical treatment in hospitals, supervised home isolation, use of non-invasive oxygen support, improved ambulance services for ferrying patients for prompt and timely treatment, upgrading clinical management skills of doctors treating COVID-19 patients, use of steroids and anti-coagulants, etc, have together resulted in seamless efficient patient management, the ministry said.
'These measures have ensured that India's COVID-19 case fatality rate (CFR) is maintained below the global average (3.3 pc). Witnessing a decline every day, it stands at 1.75 per cent as on date,' the ministry said.
