Over the last four days, 1,247 cases have been reported in Delhi with the number of positive cases rising from 7,223 on May 11 to 8,470 till date. At least 6,391 more tests have been done, taking the cumulative tests done so far to 1,19,736, while the rate of tests per million moved to 5,929 in the city. A total of 187 people have recovered till Thursday. So far, a total of 3,045 people have recovered and discharged from hospitals.

“In the next few days, the cases are expected to go up but what we need to focus is on the percentage on what it is increasing. The curve has started to flatten and even the doubling rate has improved. We need to strategically control the infection in the community. The main focus is to ensure that the deaths are not increased. We should take care of the elderly who are at a higher risk.

In the meantime, Kejriwal said today that the residents of the national capital are in favour of easing corona-induced restrictions after May 17, when the third phase of lockdown ends, making way for a gradual reopening of public transport, markets, restaurants and parks.

Kejriwal, who is among the few Chief Ministers who are in favour of greater relaxations in the fourth phase of the lockdown, read out a list of suggestions, mainly the ones advocating opening up of the economy, received from the people through emails, WhatsApp and recorded voice messages.
