On Wednesday (January 12, 2022), Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain stated that COVID-19 instances in the national capital had stabilised and that the infections may be falling shortly.
Jain further stated that if the coronavirus infections fall below a certain threshold in the next two to three days, the restrictions in Delhi will be eased.
He likened the situation to Mumbai and stated that instances have begun to decline there, and that the same situation is expected to occur in the national capital.
While predicting that the city would see roughly 25,000 cases on Wednesday, he stressed that the positive rate cannot identify whether or not the infections have peaked.
“The hospitalisation rate has stabilised, and the number of patients has plateaued. There are still a few open beds” He stated.
“Individuals with comorbidities are having more issues, and fewer people are coming to the hospital for coronavirus therapy,” Satyendar Jain noted.
On Tuesday, the national capital recorded 21,259 new COVID-19, with a positive rating of 25.65%. As a result, the city’s active caseload has risen to 74,881, the most in the last eight months. Delhi has also confirmed 23 deaths in the last 24 hours, bringing the capital’s total number of fatalities to 25,200.
