India has over 1.11 lakh more recovered Covid-19 patients than those actively infected, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has stated.

As on June 29, there are 5,48,318 total Covid-19 cases in India, of which 3,21,723 have recovered. Another 16,475 persons have died, while one patient has emigrated. This means there are 2,10,119 actively infected cases in the country. The difference between those recovered and those actively infected currently stands at 1,11,604 — more patients have recovered than suffering actively. Actively infected patients are those who are capable of spreading infection.
