As per a report from Times of India, Delhi is the only one among the larger states and Union Territories to witness a decline in active Covid-19 cases over past few days.
On July 3, there were 26,304 active cases and the number dropped by 18%.
Reduced to 21567 on July 9.
Meanwhile, this is the data from the 10th (yesterday).
2089 #COVID19 positive cases reported in Delhi today, 2468 recovered/discharged/migrated and 42 deaths also reported. The total number of positive cases in the national capital rises to 1,09,140 including 84,694 recovered/discharged/migrated and 3,300 deaths: Government of Delhi pic.twitter.com/ytFVUWDonx— ANI (@ANI) July 10, 2020
Which is a massive sigh of relief, even as the total positive cases from the capital cross the 1-lakh-mark. Because it shows that if testing is done and precautions are taken, Delhi might be able flatten the curve.
The data also shows that the per-day recoveries increased considerably, going from 2617 on the 3rd to 4027 on the 9th.
What has helped the government in achieving this, is aggressive testing, increasing hospital beds and proper awareness drives.
