Experts said the recent spike in COVID-19 cases and test positivity rates in Delhi does not signal a new wave, but individuals should take basic precautions to prevent infection transmission.
According to renowned epidemiologist Dr. Chandrakant Lahariya, the test positivity rate is stable, indicating that there is no wave of infection. The hospitalisation rate has changed slightly, proving that there is no wave, said Lahariya.
Last week, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain noted that while COVID-19 instances have increased, the situation was not serious due to mild sickness and low hospitalisation rates.
He credited immunizations and natural immunity for the low hospitalisation rate.
