Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said that the coronavirus situation in the national capital was improving as the number of active cases till June 30th remained way less than the predictions. Addressing a press conference, Kejriwal said that the virus is unpredictable and there is no room for any complacency.

"The situation is improving in Delhi in the last few days. However, there is no room for complacency. This virus is unpredictable. We must continue our efforts with more vigour," he said.

The Delhi CM said that earlier, 31 of the 100 samples tested positive for the coronavirus but this has come down to just 13.

"We've increased the number of tests. There is a good indication, earlier around 31 out of 100 people whose samples were collected tested positive for #Coronavirus. Today, 13 out of 100 people test positive," he said.

Kejriwal also said that the number of active cases in Delhi till June 30 is 26,000, way less than the predicted 60,000. As of June 30, Delhi has 85,161 cases of coronavirus with 2,680 deaths and 56,235 recovered cases.

"It was predicted that by 30th June Delhi would have 1 lakh cases out of which 60,000 would be active cases but today we only have 26,000 active cases. This is the result of everyone’s hard work. We have been able to control the situation," he added.
