The states with the lowest COVID-19 recovery ratio (number of recoveries per 100 cases) are Rajasthan, Kerala, Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka and Uttarakhand. Less than 80 patients are recovering from the coronavirus infection on an average lower than the country’s national average of 83.4%.

Among all states and Union territories, Delhi has the highest recovery ratio of 92.8%, except Andaman & Nicobar Islands, as it is 95.4% (with a lower population and caseload). Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura and Ladakh have lower caseloads with a better recovery ratio. Telangana, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal have more cases. These states with UP and Assam, have a recovery ratio of above 86%.

Uttarakhand has 67.8% recovery ratio, which is the lowest and is followed by Sikkim (68.5%), Karnataka (70.6%), Goa (73.2%), Himachal (72%), Rajasthan (73.4%) and Kerala (78.3%). Mizoram, Nagaland, Lakshadweep, J&K and Puducherry have less than 75% recovery rate.

The recovery ratio is between 80% and 85% in states like Meghalaya, Gujarat, Punjab, Jharkhand, Manipur, Chandigarh, Haryana, Bihar, MP, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh.

Lower recovery ratio does not mean a higher fatality rate (deaths every 100 cases). For example, Punjab has a recovery ratio of 80.8% along with highest fatality rate of 2.4% as compared to all states and UTs. Sikkim and Uttarakhand have fatality rates of 1.8% and 1.6%, respectively.

Delhi and Maharashtra have 1.5% fatality rate and are among the top 5 states with highest fatalities. Both the states are worst affected with the COVID-19 pandemic, as Maharashtra has 52.7 lakh confirmed cases and Delhi has 13.7 lakh cases so far. Maharashtra has the highest number of active cases of 5.3 lakh, whereas Delhi had 78,000 active COVID-19 cases as on Friday.
