Telangana inching towards 2 lakh COVID-recovered cases

Doctors who attend to patients in government hospitals say the treatment protocols have improved over the time

Telangana is inching towards two lakh COVID-19-recovered cases. From March 2 to October 14, a total of 2,17,670 people in the State were detected with coronavirus.

Spike or drop in the number of positive cases detected in a day depends on the number of tests performed. Upon skimming through data from the past few weeks provided by the Telangana Health department, it was found that over 2,100 people are detected with coronavirus if around 55,000 tests are performed in a day. And the positive cases drop if the number of tests decrease. Regardless of such tests, around 1,900 to 2,500 people are declared to have recovered every day. On Wednesday, 1,949 people had recovered.

As per available details, a 103-year-old man, Paruchuri Ramaswamy, who resides in Hyderabad is the oldest person in the State to have won over COVID-19. He was admitted at Telangana Institute of Medical Sciences and later shifted to Gandhi Hospital, both government hospitals. Patients with life-threatening diseases or medical conditions such as cancer, kidney failure, too have survived.
