“From today, we’re going to increase testing to over 80,000 tests daily. Yesterday, the government issued an order for increasing 220 beds in ICU wards in private hospitals for Covid-19 patients. There is just 25 per cent occupancy in private and government hospitals in Delhi,” Jain said.

Delhi reported 992 coronavirus cases on Tuesday, while four more people died due to the disease, the health department said. The decline in the number of infections on Tuesday is being attributed to the fall in the number of testing on the account of Holi.
