Virender Yadav, the chief medical officer, however, advised caution. “Now, the active cases stand at 11,353. The recovery rate is 94.5% in Gurgaon, and the positivity rate is below 25%. These are signs that Covid cases are declining. Still, people need to take all precautions while stepping outside. People with comorbidities should ensure that they take the Covid vaccination and follow social distancing and mask norms all the time in crowded places because the maximum Covid deaths are of people with comorbid conditions,” said Yadav. On Tuesday, 8,633 samples got collected for tests.
Doctors also said that the trend is of a decline in cases. “But it is also true that many people do not go for tests even though they are symptomatic. Also, many people do not upload the test results of the home rapid antigen tests. However, there has been a decrease in the footfall of patients in hospital outpatient departments and emergency rooms,” said Dr Manoj Goel, director, pulmonology, Fortis.
