Take a look at the statistics of the state:

“Today, Delhi COVID cases are expected to be reduced by 4,000-positivity rate will be around 30 per cent; hospital admission rate hasn’t risen in past 5-6 days. This indicates that cases are going to be fewer in the coming days. 85 per cent of hospital beds are vacant,” said Jain during a press conference in New Delhi.

On being asked when will the peak of the fifth wave in Delhi arrive, he said, “Cases peak has arrived, let’s see when the decline begins…seems like cases have begun to slow down”.

The weekend curfew has been imposed from 10 pm of Friday till 5 am of Monday by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) through its order on January 1.

Metro train services will continue to be regulated on the weekend (January 15 -16) in compliance with the DDMA guidelines issued last week, said an official spokesperson of the Delhi Metro.
