For the past week, the infection rate in all regions of the capital has stayed above 10%. As a result, all districts were transformed into red zones during the fifth wave. In any of these districts, one out of every ten samples is positive. The North West district has the greatest infection rate, while the South West district has the lowest. The figures for this in both districts are 25.44 percent and 12.12 percent, respectively.
In reality, an area or location is designated as a Red Zone if the weekly infection rate is consistently 10% or above. Within the previous week,In all of Delhi’s districts, the infection rate had risen by more than ten percent. Infection rates increased dramatically between January 3 and January 9. Since then, the figures have remained constant.
The Health Department’s district-level infection report also demonstrates that where more than 90% of samples are analyzed daily by RT-PCR, the infection rate is lower than in the other districts. Where the discrepancy between the antigen test and RT PCR is smaller, more than twice as many samples are contaminated.
According to a senior source, the central government has established guidelines for corona investigations. According to this, RT-PCR can test 60% of the samples every day, while antigen kits can test 40% of the samples every day. RT-PCR is used in more than 70% of the tests performed in Delhi. Facts about antigen testing have come to the forefront in several areas as a result of this report.
The test scale also has two ends: south west and north west.
The best examples are in the South West and North West areas. One has the highest infection rate, whereas the other has the lowest. RT-PCR was used to examine 94 percent of the samples in the South West. The infection rate in this area is only 12.12%. In the North West, however, 34% of the samples were tested for antigen and 66% were examined for RT-PCR. This district has the highest infection rate, at 25.44 percent.
Cases more than tripled in seven days.
Aside from the infection rate, there is a separate issue in Delhi with the infection rate increasing. During the first twelve days of the year, between January 1 and 4, the number of daily cases more than doubled in three days. Cases more than doubled on a single day between January 4 and 5. On January 4, 5481 people were detected infected in a single day, and by January 5, the count had risen to 10665. On January 8, i.e. the third day, the number of cases nearly doubled in 20181 i.e. again. Following that, just 20 to 25 thousand daily cases of corona were reported between January 9, 10, 11, and 12. It is apparent that the rate of doubling of corona in Delhi has now surpassed seven days since January 5.
