As per news report of The Indian Express, active cases currently stand at 11,860 and comprise 0.03 per cent of the total infections. The recovery rate remained unchanged at 98.76 per cent and 928 recoveries were reported on Monday. The daily positivity rate was at 0.31 per cent while the weekly positivity rate stood at 0.34 per cent. Delhi’s Covid-19 positivity rate on Monday jumped to 7.72 per cent as the city recorded 501 fresh cases, 16 less than the previous day, according to health department data. Officials said that last time the positivity rate was above seven per cent in the city on January 29 (7.4 per cent) and on January 28 (8.6 per cent). The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) will take stock of the situation and meet on April 20.
