The Delhi government may be telling people not to worry about the increasing cases of corona, but in a week, there has been an increase of 70.3% in the case of corona in Delhi. Between April 1 and 7 in Delhi, 826 cases of corona have been reported, while between April 8 and 14, the new cases have increased to 1,410. The infection rate has increased to 3.95%. On the last day i.e. on Friday, 366 new cases of corona were reported in the capital, while 209 patients were cured.

At the same time, it is a matter of concern that the infection rate has reached 7% in both Gurugram and Noida. Seeing these figures, from CM Arvind Kejriwal, Health Minister Satyendar Jain to Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal are taking precautions. Lieutenant Governor Baijal has called a meeting of DDMA (Delhi Disaster Management Authority) again on 20 April in view of the increasing cases of corona in Delhi.
