As many as 5,481 fresh cases of Covid-19, highest since May 16 last year, have been reported in Delhi on Tuesday with a positivity rate climbing to 8.37 per cent, according to the Health department bulletin. Three people succumbed to the infection in the last 24 hours. Today's fresh cases pushed the tally of active cases to 14,889 in the city. 

The national capital had recorded 6,456 fresh Covid-19 cases and 262 fatalities on May 16 last year. The positivity rate at that time stood at 10.4 per cent. Tuesday's positivity rate is the highest since May 17, when it stood at 8.42 per cent.

The resurgence, triggered by the new highly-transmissible Omicron variant, prompted the government to impose a weekend curfew and work from home for offices among other measures to flatten the curve.
