Mumbai: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that despite Delhi’s COVID-19 cases reaching nearly 1 lakh, people should not panic as the recovery rate in the national capital is now 72 per cent.
The Delhi Chief Minister said, “The number of cases of COVID-19 in Delhi has reached almost one lakh. However, the number need not be intimidated by one lakh as around 72,000 people have recovered from the virus.”
He further added that Delhi’s COVID-19 recovery rate is now 72 percent which is “huge because it shows that even though people are testing positive, they are recovering”.
“Around 20,000-24,000 samples are being tested on a daily basis in the national capital,” he said.
According to the Union Health Ministry, the COVID-19 cases of the national capital are near the 1 lakh mark with 99,444 coronavirus cases and 3,067 deaths.
