Delhi has logged less than 5,000 daily coronavirus cases for the first time since April 5, in what appears to be early signs that the more dangerous Covid wave is receding from the city. The national capital’s case positivity rate has also dropped below the 10 per cent threshold after weeks. Experts, however, have urged caution as Covid tests have also declined sharply in the last few weeks.
Delhi on Monday reported 4,524 cases in 24 hours. At 340, the number of deaths remained worryingly high.
The case positivity rate that had reached over 30 per cent last month, stood at 8.42 per cent in the last 24 hours – lowest since April 8.
