India’s recovery rate - the ratio of recovered patients to total cases - has reached 86.17%. However, the country also went from 60 lakh total cases to 70 lakh in less than 2 weeks. Meanwhile, airlines are starting fresh flights from October 12 in the hope of increased demand during festive season.
