Coronavirus pandemic‘s third wave has taken Delhi to the deepest downfall, says a report. Why do experts say so? Just by looking at the number of patients who are under home isolation in the national capital, anyone would say so. An increase of 50% in home isolation cases has been reported in Delhi in the last two weeks as the number of patients in home isolation has increased to 24,723. While in the containment zones, the count has increased by more than 32% in the same duration.
Since October 28, the number of coronavirus cases has been reported hugely in Delhi. On 28 October, the fresh cases were 5673 and on 8 November, the daily number of cases was recorded to 7745, which is the highest in the daily count. In this period between 28 October and 8 November, the national capital has witnessed a huge 74,000 new cases of coronavirus infection.
Experts are of the view that crowding due to festive season and increase in pollution level and laid-back attitude in following the safety norms related to coronavirus are some of the reasons due to which the city finds itself in the huge problem of rising daily cases in the last many days.
Coronavirus pandemic cannot be taken lightly. Yes, the government and the private sector are encouraging people to carry out their daily activities like going to the office, going out to buy daily stuff, and even reopening parks, theatres, etc in limited numbers. However, ignoring the safety norms just for enjoyment is not a good idea.
One needs to understand that till we get a vaccine or till there is a possibility of the coronavirus to get its natural death, we need to patiently follow wearing of masks in public places, washing hands with soap water or using sanitizers, and maintaining social distancing compulsorily to live longer, stay safer and be happier in life.
