Infection rate is increasing in Delhi
Although the corona infection rate in Delhi has remained above 20% for the last several days. Experts say that the reason for this is that only those people who have some or the other symptoms are getting tested. No random testing is happening right now. That’s why the situation is under control even after the infection rate is high. Had the same infection rate been confirmed in random testing, the situation could have been much worse. That’s why there is no need to pay much attention to the infection rate right now. All the focus should be on rescue. Must wear mask, avoid going in crowd. Special care should be taken of the elderly.
Maximum 11 patients in the report are in GTB Hospital on ventilator. There is still oxygen left for more than four days. Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital has 4 patients on ventilator and has oxygen stock for more than 6 days. Similarly, in Safdarjung Hospital, 3 patients are on ventilator and there is oxygen for more than 12 days.
