This time, it is even lower, even though we have not reached a wave yet.

No Need For Panic

As per health experts “there is no need to panic” as long as the hospitalization rate is low. However, we have taken measures to ensure the safety of senior citizens and the people having pre-existing health conditions.

Delhi has reached a point where an ample number of people have already been infected and have attained a certain level of antibodies. The vaccination rate is also pretty high in the Capital. The low hospital admissions are a good sign, but we need to be cautious for the safety of the vulnerable sections, people with co-morbidities and older people.” Dr Jugal Kishore from Safdarjung Hospital said.
