Experts said that people’s neglect of precautionary measures and moving around during the holiday season is mainly responsible for the recent increase in the cases of corona virus infection in Delhi. Dr. Richa Sarin, Consultant Pulmonology at Fortis Hospital said, “In the last few days, there has been an increase in cases but there is no panic situation right now. However, it is necessary for everyone to wear masks in public places and follow COVID friendly behaviour.”
