*In a happy milestone for the worst-hit state, the number of recovered patients in Maharashtra is now double those under treatment. On Tuesday, the total recoveries crossed 2.99 lakh while active cases were 1.42 lakh.
*The state is now conducting more tests using rapid antigen kits than RT-PCR, considered gold standard for Sars-Cov2 detection. On Monday, 59% of the tests in the state were done using the antigen method. Experts recommend against its indiscriminate use due to accuracy issues.
