Well, no one can forget the havoc caused by the COVID-19 Delta variant in Delhi last year. From the shortage of oxygen cylinders to ventilators, it almost felt like the National Captial had been converted into a war zone. After the arrival of Omicron & the fast spread of COVID-19, people are wondering whether Delhi is heading towards another lockdown? To answer this question, let's take a look at Delhi's health minister- Mr. Delhi minister Satyendar Jain.
Referring to the latest health bulletin, Delhi minister Satyendar Jain on Thursday claimed that coronavirus cases may decline across the national capital soon. “The rate of hospital admissions among COVID patients is stagnant for the last 4 days, thus cases may go down soon”, Jain stated, calling it a good sign. He went on to say that "bed occupancy is now at 15%" in the city, and that "no Omicron variant-related fatality has been recorded in the city yet."
Delhi experienced the biggest single-day surge in Covid-19 infections in the recent 24 hours, according to health bulletin statistics, with 28,867 people testing positive for the condition. The only silver lining about this is that the death rate has not gone seemingly out of control for now. In comparison to 2021's statistics daily deaths have 10 times lesser. Analyzing the statement of the health minister & COVID-19 deaths, the possibility of another lockdown in Delhi has been ruled out for now.
