Over 10,500 Covid cases, 8 deaths in Delhi, positivity nears 12%
Thursday, 6 January 2022 The third wave of Covid-19 has hit Delhi, state health minister Satyendar Jain said on Wednesday, as the capital recorded eight deaths and 10,665 new cases in 24 hours. Wednesday's tally is nearly double the number of cases reported on Tuesday (5,481), which shows the speed at which the viral infection is spreading in the city, fuelled largely by the predominance of the Omicron variant that is known to be highly transmissible.
The national capital continues to report a surge in Covid-19 cases, with 5,481 fresh cases being reported in a day. This comes as Delhi goes into weekend curfews and its CM Arvind Kejriwal too is quarantined after contracting the infection.
