No need to panic – Arvind Kejriwal
On the fast growing cases, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Wednesday that there has been an increase in COVID-19 cases. We can call this the third wave of COVID cases. However, Kejriwal said that there is no need to panic and the government is constantly monitoring the situation. We are monitoring the situation and will take all necessary action. Kejriwal said that the priority of the government is to provide the best treatment to the patients of Kovid-19 in Delhi and keep the death rate to a minimum. The Chief Minister said that there is no dearth of beds for Kovid-19 patients in the city. He said that although there is a shortage of ICU beds in some large, private hospitals, we are trying to improve it.
The Supreme Court will challenge the Supreme Court’s decision: Satyendar Jain
At the same time, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain said that due to COVID-19, about 7000 beds are full in Delhi, while 9,000 beds are vacant. Increasing cases can be called the third wave of COVID-19, but we have focused on increasing the test in the last 15 days, so it can also be attributed to the increase. Jain said that we had reserved 80% of ICU beds in private hospitals for corona patients, which was stayed by the Delhi High Court. For this we are now going to the Supreme Court. We will demand the Supreme Court to reverse this decision.
