The number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Delhi has been on the rise again in recent days. The capital has seen a continuous surge in the number of cases, with 152 new infections reported in the last 24 hours alone. The infection rate has also risen to 6.66%. This represents a significant increase from the 117 cases reported on Thursday, indicating that the situation is worsening rapidly.

Experts have suggested that the rise in COVID-19 cases may be linked to the increasing number of cases of H3N2 flu in the city. As more people have been getting tested for H3N2, some have been found to be positive for COVID-19 as well. The trend is reflected in the figures from the past few days, with 84 cases reported on Wednesday and 83 on Tuesday, before the sudden spike on Friday.

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi has issued several recommendations to hospitals in the city to help tackle the situation. Hospitals have been advised to screen patients with fever and maintain an adequate supply of essential medicines. They have also been instructed to ensure that ventilators and other equipment are in good working order.

The Corporation has urged hospitals to promote the booster vaccine dose to their employees and patients and to follow all government guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. A nodal officer has been appointed to ensure that hospitals maintain cleanliness, prevent the spread of infection, and manage biomedical waste effectively.

The situation is not limited to Delhi, as cases of COVID-19 are rising rapidly in other parts of India as well. Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Karnataka are all areas of concern, and the central government has held a meeting to discuss the matter. The focus remains on testing, tracing, and treatment, as authorities work to contain the spread of the virus.

A tragic incident took place at Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital (GTB) in Delhi, where a patient named Riyazuddin was shot and killed. The police revealed that the intended target was actually Wasim, a known criminal in the bed opposite Riyazuddin’s. The attackers mistakenly killed Riyazuddin before fleeing. An FIR has been registered, and the police are actively searching for the attackers.

Who was Riyazuddin?

Riyazuddin, a 32-year-old resident of Shriram Colony (Khajuri Khas), had been battling health issues and drug addiction after his father’s death. Recently, he had undergone surgery at GTB Hospital due to a stomach infection. He was readmitted on June 23rd for further treatment. Riyazuddin leaves behind his mother, wife, and two children.

How did the incident happen?

On Sunday around 4 PM, Riyazuddin’s sister Tarannum was by his side while a nurse attended to him. Suddenly, three men entered the ward, and one pulled out a gun, shooting Riyazuddin twice in the stomach. The nurse and Tarannum managed to duck and avoid getting shot. The attackers fired more shots as they escaped. Despite a security guard being present, he couldn’t stop them. The police found five shell casings at the scene.

Who were the attackers targeting?

The attackers were after Wasim, who was also in Ward No. 24, opposite Riyazuddin. Wasim has a criminal record with 17 cases against him. The attackers mistakenly targeted Riyazuddin instead.

Which gangster’s name is involved?

According to Wasim’s family, the attack was orchestrated by Samir Baba, a criminal from the Welcome Police Station area. Wasim’s wife claimed that assailants had previously tried to kill her husband but failed.

What was the dispute between Wasim and Samir Baba?

The conflict began when Wasim, while in jail, clashed with Samir Baba. A murder plan was allegedly hatched against Wasim. On June 12th, Wasim and his friend Asif were attacked at Shaitan Chowk, resulting in multiple injuries. Wasim has been in GTB Hospital since then, and his wife has asked for police protection.

Wasim’s criminal history

While Riyazuddin had no criminal background, Wasim has been involved in various crimes, including attempted murder, extortion, and robbery.

What did eyewitnesses say?

A nurse, who wished to remain anonymous, reported that the assailants entered the ward, demanded silence, and then shot Riyazuddin before fleeing. The gunshots drew a crowd and alerted the police.

Doctors on strike… What did the Health Minister say?

Following the shooting, the Resident Doctors Association (RDA) at GTB Hospital went on an indefinite strike, demanding better security. Delhi Health Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj criticized the law and order situation, blaming Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena for the rise in crime. Bharadwaj emphasized that security in hospitals would be reviewed and that negligence would not be tolerated.

What did the hospital say?

A GTB Hospital official confirmed that the attackers shot Riyazuddin and escaped. No other injuries were reported. Senior police officials and the crime branch quickly responded to the scene. The RDA announced their strike due to ongoing security concerns.
