Increase in cases, but hospitalisation rate remains low; CM Arvind Kejriwal

Over the past couple of days, Covid-19 cases have taken a surge in the country, with more than 7,000 cases in the whole country, India recorded its highest spike in more than 233 days. With this, the hospitalisation rate due to Covid-19 remains low in the national capital despite a recent spurt in cases, says Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday.

Delhi, on Thursday, recorded 1,527 Covid cases with a positivity rate of 27.77, as per the data of the city’s government’s Health department.

Most importantly, only 231 of the 7,945 beds in the city’s dedicated Covid hospitals are occupied as of now, it said.

Speaking to the media on the occasion of Ambedkar Jayanti event at the Vidhan Sabha, Kejriwal said, “We are taking care of the increasing number of corona cases. The cases are not serious and people are not requiring hospitalisation. If needed, then appropriate steps will be taken.”

Also, as Covid-19 struck India around 3 years back, most of the Indian population has been affected by it at least once, and with that, herd immunity is being formed throughout the country, which could be a huge positive point to control the spread of the virus.

Furthermore, more than 90% of the population has taken double shots of the Covid-19 vaccine.
