Kolkata, October 29, 2020: On Wednesday, Delhi recorded 5,673 new cases that brings in concern as the national tally of COVID cases for the past one week has shown a decline. Festive season being round the corner this spike increases risk for people to go out of the houses even more.
The health department bulletin says that the number of deaths recorded in one day in Delhi was 40 and the national tally being 517. The total cases in Delhi reaches 3.7 lakh.
The total number of active cases in the nation remains above the 6 lakh mark with nearly 30,000 cases recorded yesterday.
The Health Ministry has shown concern over the matter and will be having a meeting regarding the matter of taking extra measures for the coming days of festivities and invoking rather stricter rules for the public.
The COVID experts are suggesting that the onset of winter can cause the increase of the cases as the virus can get deadlier with the drop of the temperature. They also suggested the government to warn the citizens about the festivities like Diwali which will occur in the midst of winter this year.
Delhi is having its worst time as it deals with the annual air pollution along with its spike in COVID cases, things are expected to get severe by the end of the year if proper precautions are not taken by the Government.
The country should also be prepared for the second wave by the end of the year suggests the COVID experts. The total cases of India remains above 80 lakh.
