The second wave of Covid-19 is raging in the Capital, leaving the national Capital’s healthcare system overburdened and people scrambling for hospital beds, medicines and oxygen support. Last week , chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had briefly isolated himself after his wife Sunita Kejriwal tested positive.

The national Capital has been recording over 25,000 cases for the past few days and a positivity rate of around 30℅. Experts have said that the positivity rate must be less than 5℅ in order to contain the infection.
