The national capital recorded 1,323 new cases of COVID-19 and two deaths on Thursday, with a positivity rate of 6.69 percent. Despite the increase in the positivity rate, the city government is not implementing the Gradient Response Action Plan (GRAP) prepared by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority because the number of hospitalizations is low.

The GRAP came into effect in August of last year, and stipulates the measures to be taken by the government according to the positivity rate and bed-filling for various lock and unlock activities.
