This is besides Lok Nayak Jai Prakash (LNJP) Hospital that has so far been patients afflicted by the new strain of Covid-19 in the national capital.
Ten new cases of the Omicron variant were registered in Delhi on Friday when the national capital saw the largest spike in cases in nearly four months with 85 fresh infections.
Health minister Satyendar Jain said, “Ten new cases of Omicron variant have been reported in Delhi, taking the total number of cases of the strain here to 20. Of the 20 patients, 10 have been discharged.”
So far, most patients of the new variant have shown mild symptoms and have been discharged within a few days.
