NEWDELHI: The num­ber of coro­n­avirus dis­ease (Covid-19) cases in the na­tional cap­i­tal rose by 660 be­tween Thurs­day and Fri­day, the big­gest sin­gle-day spike in the tally, ac­cord­ing to fig­ures re­leased by the govern­ment.

Delhi’s tally on Fri­day crossed 12,000. The city-state also recorded 14 deaths, tak­ing the toll over the 200 mark to 208, ac­cord­ing to the daily health bul­letin re­leased by the Delhi govern­ment.

For the last four days, over 500 cases have been recorded in the daily health bul­letin.

Of­fi­cials and ex­perts have said eas­ing of the lock­down re­stric­tions, re­sump­tion of long dis­tance air and rail travel ser­vices, and the move­ment of hun­dreds of thou­sands of mi­grants are likely to lead to a spurt in in­fec­tions.
