The COVID-19 cases in Delhi continue to only rise each passing day and recently, according to news reports, the number of containment zones in Delhi has jumped to 341 from 280 as the Delhi government remapped the containment zones following the decision to change the COVID-19 strategy of the government. 

In fact, Delhi is the second worst-affected region by COVID-19 with over 80,000 confirmed cases; which includes 2,558 deaths and more than 28,000 active cases. 

The reports also suggest that the city reported 2,948 fresh infections over 24 hours - nearly as many as China, where the pandemic began in December 2019. 

At a time like this, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday said that there is no community transmission in Delhi and there is nothing to worry about.

In an interview with ANI, Amit Shah also quoted Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, who had earlier said that Delhi will have 5.5 lakh Covid-19 cases by July 31.

Shah said that the remarks made by Manish Sisodia caused âpanic and fearâ among Delhiites and expressed confidence that the stage won't be reached.

The Home Ministerâs statement has come at a time when the city is registering around 3000 fresh cases every day and this hasnât gone down too well with people on Twitter.

Denial is no more a name of river in Egypt. It is now a name of Home Minister of India.

This man was underground for last 3 months, suddenly he awakes and see no community spread in Delhi with 80k cases. Fact is every second home in Delhi have one Corona case.

Community transmission, or Stage 3 of a pandemic, is marked by cases that cannot be traced to any source of infection.

In addition, Amit Shah's statement comes weeks after Health Minister Satyendar Jain said there was "transmission in the community" but insisted only the centre could confirm this. However, Jain, who has recovered after being hospitalised for COVID-19, earlier said "in 50 per cent of cases in Delhi the source of infection is unknown".
