Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain says: Will monitor pandemic situation for 3-4 days

OUR CORRESPONDENT

NEW DELHI: Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Wednesday said the government will monitor the Covid situation for three to four days to confirm the trend of positivity rate before reviewing the curbs in the national Capital.

He said the city is likely to see around 13,000 cases on Wednesday with a positivity rate of around 24 percent.

“The Covid positivity rate has come down from 30 percent to 22.5 percent in Delhi. The rate should be half of it. We will monitor the situation for three to four days,” the minister said on reviewing the curbs in the city.

Delhi on Wednesday reported a slight uptick in the daily Covid positivity rate as a marginally higher number of tests a day ago threw up 13,785 fresh Covid-19 cases. Significantly, the city also reported 35 more deaths from the virus, taking the toll here to 25,460.
