Delhi reports 21% of all covid-19 deaths in India in past week3 min read 19 Nov 2020, 01:07 PM IST
The city’s total caseload crossed 500,000 after rising 11% within a week. Delhi is now one of only eight states and Union territories with a recovery rate below 90%.
The third wave of the coronavirus in Delhi is still going strong, and a significant dip in pollution levels after the post-Diwali rain does not appear to have helped. A coronavirus test in the national capital is still around 13% likely to turn positive. Despite high testing, this is among the highest positivity rates in the country.
