On Sunday, Delhi recorded an increasing positive rate (23 percent), with 22,751 new cases registered in just 24 hours.
This morning, the country saw a tremendous increase of 1.79 lakh new cases, with a daily positive rate of 13.29 percent. Around ten days ago, the country was registering 10,000-15,000 cases every day on average.
The growth appears to be fueled by the Variant of Concern (VOC) “Omicron” and the persistence of another VoC “Delta” in wide areas across the country, according to the Health Ministry.
