Covid cases in Delhi: Bad news! New infections on rise; positivity rate surges beyond 9%
Covid cases in Delhi continue to rise, causing concerns among doctors and health experts. According to experts, people’s carelessness and failure to adhere to Covid-appropriate behavior are responsible for the surge in cases. Most Covid cases are asymptomatic, and more cases are expected to come to light as testing increases.
The positivity rate in Delhi has now reached 9.1%. According to doctors, we need to wear masks and follow Covid guidelines. Masks should be a part of our culture. The reason behind the increase in cases is that we are being careless. Some of the cases are also due to sudden spikes. If we increase testing, we may find many more cases that are asymptomatic
Covid will increase just like seasonal flu. We do not need to panic regarding preparedness. We are fully prepared. We currently have 210 beds. We have oxygen concentrators and a liquid oxygen plant. We have an ambulance service to transport Covid patients. We have been working on this for over a year, and we are prepared to handle any situation, said a doctor.
सीएम @ArvindKejriwal जी के निर्देश पर कोविड से संबंधित तैयारियां पूरी हैं। हर स्थिति से निपटने के लिए हमारे हॉस्पिटल तैयार हैं

The surge in cases has led to speculation that Delhi may impose new restrictions to curb the spread of the virus. In recent weeks, several states have imposed restrictions such as night curfews, weekend lockdowns, and the closure of educational institutions to control the spread of the virus.
In conclusion, it is crucial to follow Covid-appropriate behavior to prevent the further spread of the virus. Wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, and frequently washing hands are some of the measures that individuals can take to keep themselves and others safe. Additionally, increasing testing and contact tracing can help identify asymptomatic cases and prevent them from spreading the virus to others. It is also essential for healthcare systems to be adequately prepared to handle any situation that may arise during the pandemic.
