The national capital's Covid-19 count crossed the grim one lakh milestone this week but the number of active cases is dipping as is the positivity rate while the recovery rate is going up, raising hopes of the epidemic curve flattening if the trends continue.
As testing is significantly ramped up, the death rate, too, has fallen marginally and the projected explosion of cases hasn't happened. The signs are undoubtedly good but these are just baby steps as Delhi moves ahead in its fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, cautioned experts.
It is early days yet, they said, stressing the urgent need to continue with social distancing, masks, hand hygiene and other dos and don'ts to ward off the infection. Lowering the guard could lead to cases surging again.
