Health experts and doctors have attributed this 'sudden rise' in cases to people turning complacent.

In Delhi, Thursday's figures were the highest since December 16 when 1,547 people tested positive for the virus, according to official data.

Health experts and doctors have attributed this 'sudden rise' in cases to people turning complacent, not following COVID-appropriate behaviour and 'assuming all is well now'.

The next two-three months could be challenging, they said, adding the situation can be kept under control if vaccination is opened up for more people and COVID-19 protocols are strictly adhered to.
