As on August 30, there were 639 active Covid patients out of which 96 were in home isolation. More than half of the 22 districts have not reported any new infection for over a week now.

Till August 30, over 1.62 crore doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered to people.

The recovery rate of patients is above 99 per cent in Gurgaon, Faridabad, Sonipat, and Mahendragarh districts. The lowest recovery rate of 96.79 per cent is in Kaithal, while the remaining districts have a recovery rate of 97 per cent or more.
