New Delhi. The rate of infection is increasing rapidly in the third wave of corona virus, but due to less sample testing on Sunday, there was a slight decrease in the number of infected on Monday. Barring one or two states, everywhere else the number of patients on Monday was less than on Sunday. In the capital Delhi, the number of patients found in 24 hours was 19,166, while the infection rate was 25 percent. This means that the report of every fourth person in Delhi is coming positive. The number of patients found in Delhi on Monday is much less than 22,751 a day earlier. But this is because testing has reduced. 17 patients died in Delhi for the second consecutive day.
