Delhi records zero Covid case in last 24 hours, first time since pandemic
For the first time since March 2020, no new Covid case was reported in Delhi on Monday (January 16), said a bulletin issued by the Delhi Health Department. As per reports, the positivity rate in Delhi was 0.00 percent with zero death in the last 24 hours. As per the data shared by the city health department, the number of active cases stands at just 10.
The bulletin reports that 9 Covid patients have recovered from the infection in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of recoveries to 19,80,781. There is no Containment Zone in Delhi now. The burden of Covid patients on the hospitals has also been reduced considerably. A total of 91 cases of corona have come so far this month and one patient has died.
The national capital recorded its first COVID-19 case on 2 March 2020. Since then, a total of 20,07,313 cases have been registered in the capital. It has a cumulative positivity rate of 4.94 percent and 26,522 pandemic-related deaths so far. Seven states, including Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal, have recorded more Covid cases than Delhi.
The national capital has faced three Covid waves and the second wave with the delta variant in April-May 2021 was the deadliest. With a positive rate of 0.05 percent, the city recorded just one new case on Sunday (January 15). On Saturday (January 14), there were three new Covid cases with a positivity rate of 0.10 percent, and on Friday (January 13), there were six new cases with a positivity rate of 0.41 percent.
According to the data released by INSACOG on Monday (January 16), a total of 26 cases of XBB.1.5 of COVID have been reported in India so far. Delhi, Maharashtra, and West Bengal are some of the 11 states and union territories that have the variant so far. The significant increase in COVID cases in the United States is due to XBB.1.5.
The World Health Organization (WHO) states that 38 countries have reported XBB.1.5 cases, of which 82% have been reported in the US, 8% in the UK, and 2% in Denmark.
Four cases of Omicron sub-variant BF.7 have been reported in West Bengal, three in Maharashtra, two each in Haryana and Gujarat, and one each in Odisha, Delhi and Karnataka. The BF.7 variant is apparently driving China’s COVID-19 wave.
