The latest reports from NCT authorities said that they would screen every household in New Delhi in the next two weeks, starting from containment zones.

In the attempt to curb the spread of coronavirus in New Delhi, the administrators have decided to screen all households in the region within the next two weeks. The process is expected to finish by July 6 while the testing in containment zones should be done before June 30. According to reports, there are over 33 lakh of households registered in New Delhi in 2020. This number in 2014 was over 42 lakh. However, the real statistic might go much higher as this doesn't include migrant workers or those without houses in the city.
