Nirmal Bang Report

In the second fortnight of August 2021, mobility was flat or witnessed a marginal dip, except for workplace mobility.

The New Delhi traffic congestion index witnessed a modest dip. Mobility for essential services and retail and recreation moderated from the previous fortnight.

Use of public transport improved marginally while workplace mobility witnessed a sharp improvement and was back to levels seen in November and December 2020, when the first Covid-19 wave had ebbed.

The number of active cases witnessed a marginal dip of 3.8% from the previous fortnight while the number of deaths was down by only 1.8%.

However, the daily addition to new cases has been on an uptrend in the past few days, which keeps us watchful for a possible third wave.
