Covid-19 cases in Delhi have witnessed a rapid surge with nearly two-fold increase in hospitalisations in over a fortnight. Officials say, patients with comorbidities are getting admitted to hospitals.
90% of corona-infected patients admitted to the hospitals are those patients who have taken only two doses of the vaccine and only 10% of the patients got corona infected after the third dose of the vaccine. Sisodia said, "It is clear from this that people who apply precautionary doses are safer from corona infection," he asserted.
On Tuesday, Delhi reported 917 new Covid cases with a positivity rate of 19.20 per cent, the highest in over 200 days. 3 deaths were reported according to data shared by the city health department.
