New Delhi, 5/1: Delhi is likely to report around 10,000 Covid-19 infections on Wednesday, with the daily positivity rate rising to nearly 10 per cent, Heath Minister Satyendar Jain said in a briefing.
The third wave of Covid-19 has set in, he said.
“Genome sequencing of all Covid samples not possible now, only 300-400 samples being sequenced,” Jain added. Delhi had earlier decided to carry out genome sequencing for every Covid-19 infection.
The national capital has instructed private hospitals to increase the number of reserved beds for Covid patients to 40 per cent from 10 per cent of their capacity. Nearly 2 per cent of beds are occupied in the government hospitals so far, Jain cited.
