Here are the LIVE updates on Coronavirus Cases:
Delhi recorded 3,235 new COVID-19 cases and 95 deaths due to the coronavirus disease in the last 24 hours, state government data shows.
On Diwali, infections in the national capital dropped to almost half of last week’s average of 7,000 daily cases as just 21,098 tests were conducted – a third of the usually 60,000 tests conducted per day in Delhi since its second wave in September.
Though the drop in testing was attributed to staff shortage because of the festival, it also led to speculation about what the actual number of new cases would have been as the positivity rate increased to 15.33 per cent.
The daily coronavirus figures, which are usually released around 10 pm every day, were shared just ahead of an urgent meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah today as COVID-19 spike continues unabated in the national capital. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is likely to attend this meeting.
