Meanwhile, Delhi is expected to log 17,000 cases to its coronavirus infection tally with a positivity rate of around 17 per cent on Friday, Health Minister Satyendar Jain said. He asserted that the capital city is the first to witness a surge in infections because most of the international flights come to the capital.

“That is the reason we have implemented stricter measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 as compared to other states. Some people may say that this is not needed but it is better than repenting later,” Jain told reporters.
