On seven out of last eight days, the number of people who were declared to have recovered from the novel Coronavirus disease in Delhi has exceeded the number of new infections. On Jul 8, the difference in these two numbers was almost 2,000, reported indianexpress.com Jul 9.

The report continued that after reaching a peak on Jun 23, when 3,947 new infections were detected in Delhi, there has been a steady decline in the number of new cases every day.

If the trend of daily recoveries going higher than new infections holds for more than two weeks at a stretch, it could be an indication of the disease having peaked in the Indian capital. It would mean that more people are recovering from the disease than are falling sick. In Delhi, this trend has been holding on for about a week, though there has been deviation on at least one day. This is the longest that the trend has held on in any major state. Other states have reported higher recoveries than new infections on several occasions, but this has never held on for more than two or three days, the report noted.
