New Delhi:

Delhi recorded 1,550 new coronavirus cases today – lowest since March 30 – prompting Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to say that the second deadly wave of Covid is now under control. The good news however came with a warning. “Second wave in control, started prep for 3rd wave,” the Chief Minister tweeted with a list of steps taken to control the pandemic.

“Imported 6000 oxy cylinders. Can set up 3000 oxy beds with these. Grateful to HCL, Give India and Central govt (esp Indian embassy in Beijing) for helping us get these cylinders to Delhi. Many more preps underway,” Mr Kejriwal tweeted with photos of the imported oxygen cylinders.

The city recorded 207 deaths in 24 hours taking the total fatalities to 23,181. The positivity rate stood at 2.5 per cent while the fatality rate is at 1.65 per cent.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared Covid positivity rate below 5 per cent to be within the safe zone. Experts have said that the dip in cases can be attributed to the lockdown in the capital, which Mr Kejriwal said may be slowly lifted if infections keep going down. For now, the lockdown will be in place till 5 am on May 31.

With today’s fresh infections, total Covid cases in Delhi crossed 14.18 lakh.
