No lockdown, peak of third wave over: Jain

Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Monday said the government will not impose any lockdown in the city because of the COVID-19 situation. He also said that the peak of third wave of the infection had passed and positivity of cases would slowly come down.

The Minister said the “lowest positivity” is among healthcare workers of COVID-19 hospitals because they are “taking measures for protection”. “The people who are in the most dangerous condition have the lowest positivity because they are protecting themselves. So, protection is sufficient,” Mr. Jain said.
