The city’s hospitalisation rate for coronavirus infection has remained stable, but cases and positivity rates have increased, according to Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain. According to the minister, the death audit committee, which met on Wednesday, discovered that the fatalities were mostly among those who had comorbid conditions.
In the first 12 days of the month, 133 people have died in the national capital. In the previous five months, there had been 54 fatalities, with nine in December, seven in November, four in October, five in September, and 29 in August. The virus claimed 76 lives in Delhi in July.
According to Jain, the cases may begin to decline soon. “Over the last four days, hospital admissions have stabilised. Although the number of cases is increasing, the rate of hospital admissions has not increased in lockstep. When 27,000 cases are reported, the hospital admission rate is the same as when 10,000 cases are reported. He told reporters that the stable hospital admission rate indicates that the wave has reached a halt.
On Wednesday, Delhi reported 27,561 Covid cases, the second-highest single-day increase since the pandemic began, and 40 deaths, with a positivity rate of 26.22 percent.
