New Delhi: There is a fluctuating situation in the cases of corona in the national capital Delhi. On Thursday, 1,365 new cases of Kovid-19 were reported, but the good thing is that no patient died due to infection. The positivity rate stood at 6.35 percent. This information came from the data shared by the Health Department of Delhi. A total of 21,501 Kovid-19 tests were conducted in Delhi on Wednesday. The data shows that with these new cases of Kovid-19, the total number of infected in the national capital increased to 18,89,769.
The data shared in a bulletin shows that there are 5,746 under-treatment cases in the national capital, down from the previous day’s 5,853. The number of containment zones increased to 1,473 from 1,343 on Wednesday. It added that the hospitalization rate so far has been low, which is less than three percent of the total number of cases under treatment.
At present, 192 Kovid-19 patients are admitted in hospitals in Delhi, while 4,189 are in home isolation, the bulletin said. According to this, out of 9,593 beds for Kovid-19 patients in various hospitals, only 208 (2.17 percent) are admitted. Experts have said that the increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in the last few weeks and the infection rate in Delhi does not indicate the beginning of a new wave, but people should take precautions to prevent the spread of the infection.
22 lakh fine imposed from April 22 till now
Delhi has imposed a total fine of Rs 22 lakh on over 4,500 people for not wearing masks ever since the re-imposition of the mandatory wearing of masks in view of the increase in the cases of corona virus infection. This information came to the fore in government figures. The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA), in a meeting last month, had decided to impose a fine of Rs 500 on those who do not wear masks. The DDMA had again made it mandatory to wear masks in public places in an order issued on 22 April.
