After registering a decline, the number of coronavirus cases is sharply increasing in Delhi. On Thursday, the national capital registered its highest single-day spike in COVID-19 infections since the pandemic began. As per the Delhi government, a record 5,739 fresh COVID-19 cases were registered in the national capital yesterday. This was for the second consecutive day that Delhi recorded more than 5,000 cases in a day. “Spike in cases is due to aggressive contact tracing and testing. Until there is a vaccine, masks should be considered as vaccine. If you wear masks, it'll protect you from pollution and COVID-19 both,” Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain said.
