Nearly 500 deaths, but 93% of Covid19 patients recovering now

 

The death toll of Covid19 is now nearly 500 in Goa, but the recovery rate has improved tremendously in the last 10 days.

Goa has reported 70 deaths this month, at the rate of an average of seven deaths every day. This is a little less than last month. 

In the first 10 days of September, Goa had lost 76 lives and 234 in the full month, at an average of eight deaths per day.

But it’s definitely much more than August when we lost 36 lives in the first 10 days and a total of 150.

It means the death rate is not coming down to date after it shot up last month. 

Secondly, one month of September has recorded 47 percent deaths of the total tally. And 10 days of October have recorded 14 percent deaths.
