On Tuesday, Delhi registered 11,684 new Covid-19 cases and 38 deaths, bringing the national capital's positive rate to 22.47 percent. Satyendar Jain, the city's health minister, said the number of cases is falling, but the government is keeping an eye on the trend.
In the national capital, there are at least 78,112 active cases, down from 83,982 cases on Monday. Meanwhile, nodal personnel from public hospitals have been assigned to oversee the care of Covid-19 patients and immunizations at private hospitals.
Traders, market associations, shopkeepers, hawkers, vendors, and workers have all been instructed to get vaccinated, with those who are not vaccinated not being allowed in marketplaces.
To stop the virus from spreading, Delhi has enacted a slew of restrictions, including night curfews and weekend curfews. Daily infections began to spike in the closing days of December last year, mostly due to the Omicron variant, after remaining low for several months. This prompted authorities to tighten restrictions.
