Earlier in the day, he addressed a press conference and said that Covid-19 cases are on rise in Delhi as well as the rest of the country but it has been observed that the rate at which infection was spreading earlier has slowed down which is good news. "I hope that this trend will continue and soon Covid-19 positivity rate will fall further," he added. He also announced that his government will organize special Yoga/Pranayam classes for patients in home isolation.
