Meanwhile, the Delhi government has ordered that one-third of inoculation sites at its hospitals run round-the-clock and directed government as well as private hospitals to augment the number of beds reserved for coronavirus patients as the national capital recorded over 3,500 fresh COVID-19 cases and 15 more deaths. The case positivity rate also rose to 5.54% amid a massive surge in cases in the last few weeks.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to relax the norms for opening vaccination centres and lift the age criterion for getting inoculated. He reiterated that the Delhi government can vaccinate all the residents of the city within three months if the necessary permissions are granted by the Centre.
