On Thursday, there were 28,867 cases recorded in Delhi, the highest since the beginning of the pandemic. "We can say that Delhi has reached a peak in terms of cases. Cases have started slowing down.

When asked whether restrictions will be eased in Delhi as cases have come down, he said, "Let's wait. The cases have started declining. They came down to 24,000 yesterday and will come down to 20000 today. Let them come down to 15,000 or below and then we will see."
