New Delhi: Delhi’s COVID-19 recovery rate has improved to nearly 80 per cent, authorities said. They have put off the plan to use stadium as makeshift coronavirus care facility.
This is the first time in July that the daily case count has remained below the 2,000-mark for two consecutive days. On Saturday, 1,781 cases were detected.
The COVID-19 recovery rate improved to 79.97 per cent on Sunday, as per the bulletin.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that Delhi has been able to minimise deaths of coronavirus patients in home isolation through pulse oximeters, which he termed as “suraksha kavach” (protective shield).
The Delhi government has asked all district magistrates to document initiatives taken by them in their respective areas to deal with the COVID-19 situation.
