Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Thursday said that COVID-19 cases are likely rise in Delhi as testing in the national capital has been increased four times.

The health minister added that the number of coronavirus cases is likely to rise for around 10 to 15 days as a result of increased testing.

"We have increased #COVID19 testing four times due to which numbers are likely to rise in Delhi, for 10-15 days. This will help in isolating the positive cases and have a positive impact on the national capital," he said.
