Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain in a press meet stated on Tuesday that expanded Covid testing is one of the significant reasons for the rise in Covid cases in Delhi.
When provided information about Niti Aayog’s anticipation of 500 cases for each million populace, Jain hesitated to remark and set aside that they had said it earlier also.
A Niti Aayog appraisal put forth that a much adverse circumstance is likely to arise in Delhi, which could be a threat in the coming days due to an infringement of Covid standards in the festive season.
In any case, Jain has affirmed that Delhi is at present going through the third influx of the Covid pandemic, however its pinnacle has passed. Mostly outsiders getting tested in Delhi has caused such spur.
“Positivity rate was at 15 percent and now it dropped to 13 percent. In June, the positivity rate was at 40%,” he asserted.
Addressing on the Delhi model, he said, “Home isolation is the best. Everyone was given pulse meters, 16,000 dedicated beds were established for Covid patients.”
Currently Delhi is worst affected. It has been experiencing the third wave of Covid-19 since October 28 when the daily rise spurted the 5,000-mark for the first time since the outbreak erupted. On November 11, the daily number of diseases crossed the 8,000-mark. The cases have began declining.
