Abstract: Morbidity, Mortality, Case fatality rates (CFR) and recovery rates are important readouts during epidemics and pandemics. In this article, State wise analysis was done for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in India. Data were retrieved from Worldometer, COVID 19 India/ api: Our database- Github, Ministry of health and family welfare, ICMR and NCDC. Morbidity, Mortality, Case fatality rate and recovery rates were calculated for each state and comparison of CFR and RR among states with total cases was observed from beginning of first case till 30 November, 2020. The morbidity rating first five states are Delhi (3375.3), Goa (3288.4) Maharashtra (1623.0), Puducherry (2959.6) and Tamil Naidu (1083.7) whereas Delhi (54.0), Puducherry (48.7), Goa (47.1), Maharashtra (41.9), Chandigarh (26.2) are for high mortality rate. Punjab (3.16%) and Maharashtra (2.58%), reported highest case fatality rate followed by Sikkim, Gujarat, West Bengal with highest recovery rate in Andhra Pradesh and Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Obtaining definite and precise clinical history from COVID-19 patients, and analyzing morbidity, mortality, CFR alongside the recovery rate, may help in the identification of the highest disease burden areas so that better and necessary medical care may be provided to expand the probabilities of survival of COVID-19 patients.
