The recovery rate was 92.36%, the lowest among the northeastern states, till 5 pm on Tuesday.
While 2,318 people were discharged on Tuesday, the total number of infected people who had recovered in the state rose to 1,61,642 as against the total number of infected people at 1,75,022.
The total number of active cases on Tuesday was 12,768, while the toll rose to 612 with four more people succumbing to the virus in the last 24 hours.

A Healthworker’s statement
“The caseload was extremely high during the last part of the second wave last year in Mizoram. While other states, especially in the northeast region, logged only a few infections, Mizoram reported the highest daily caseloads for over 60 consecutive days last year,”
