Delhi sees rise in hospitalisations after Covid spike, 8-10 deaths daily

New Delhi/IBNS: Hospitalisations are up in Delhi as Covid-19 cases reported a surge prompting authorities to urge people to wear masks and observe precautions related to the disease.

"We are witnessing a rise in COVID-19 infections, consistently high positivity and cases of reinfection. It is essential that we realise that the pandemic is far from over. I appeal to all to strictly adhere to COVID Appropriate Behaviour. We cannot afford to let our guards down," Delhi's Lt Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena tweeted.

On Monday, Delhi reported 1,227 new Covid-19 cases with a positivity rate of 14.57 per cent, along with eight deaths, according to data shared by the city health department.

Before this, the national capital logged more than 2,000 cases daily for 12 consecutive days.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had last week said though the cases were on the rise, there was no need to panic as most of them were mild.

Despite the rise in the positivity rate, the AAP government has not announced the implementation of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) devised by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority yet.
