Covid hospitalizations in Delhi have nearly doubled in the last two weeks, and the positivity rate is nearing 20%. During the last 24 hours, 4775 tests were conducted in Delhi, of which 917 were positive.

Indian Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has said that 90% per cent of Covid-19 patients were double vaccinated.

ICU admissions are at the highest peak for weeks, and patients on oxygen and on ventilator support are also increasing.

BA.2.75 has been dominant in the Indian capital for more than two weeks, and the apparent increase in pathogenicity is beginning to cause concern in medical circles,
