While 1,071 new infections were reported on Saturday, the most significant number in 129 days, there was a considerable increase in Covid cases recorded in a single day.
According to officials, the Delhi government ordered hospitals and labs to increase testing in response to the increase in cases in the city to ensure early diagnosis of Covid-19 infections.
Health experts countered that there was no need for concern because most patients were not experiencing severe symptoms, and the spike was still minimal relative to the city's population.
