The national capital recorded another 3,000 new cases of Coid-19 to take its tally to 59,746 on Sunday. It was the third straight day that the number of cases touched or crossed 3,000.
Sixty three more deaths on Sunday took the casualty toll to 2,175.
Delhi’s health minister Satyendar Jain who continues to be in hospital for Covd-19, is said to be recovering.
Amid a surge in Covid-19 cases, the Delhi government has been pulling out all the stops to tide over the crisis. It has already cancelled leaves of staff members of state-run hospitals and medical institutions and taken over a few large hotels and attached them to hospitals to cater to the rising number of infections.
The railways have also stationed hundreds of coaches to serve as isolation wards for those not Covid-19 patients not severely affected.
