There is no community transmission in Delhi according to officials from the Centre, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Tuesday amid a surge in Covid-19 cases in the Capital.

Addressing reporters after a meeting of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA), Sisodia estimated that there might be 5.5 lakh Covid-19 cases in the city by July 31 while Delhi may need 80,000 beds by July-end.

The meeting was chaired by Lt Governor Anil Baijal, who is also chairperson of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority. Earlier, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Tuesday said the source of infection is “not known” in nearly half of the fresh cases being reported.

The increasing cases of coronavirus in Delhi have not just become a cause for concern but also triggered a political slugfest, with the L-G on Monday overruling the AAP government’s order to reserve Delhi government-run and some private hospitals in the national capital for Delhiites. The lieutenant governor is also the Chairman of Delhi Disaster Management Authority.
