Amid pollution spike, Delhi breaks daily Covid-19 cases record again

Oct 30, 2020 00:11 IST

Delhi continues to record unprecedented daily coronavirus cases with the national capital witnessing over 5000 infections in the last 24 hours for the second consecutive day. Health authorities said that the city which is battling severe pollution these days recorded 5,739 fresh cases on Thursday which is more than the 5,673 cases it witnessed on Wednesday. After breaching the 5000 cases mark since the pandemic was announced for the first time on Wednesday, Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain was cautious, saying it is too early to infer if the national capital was seeing a third wave of Covid-19. Various studies have shown a direct link between the spike in pollution and Covid-19 cases.
