New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that lockdown will be not there in State and he also said that State government is fully prepared to deal with any kind of problem posed by the Covid-19 situation.
However, it will not impose a lockdown. “We are fully prepared. We have the ability to extend up to 37,000 beds if necessary.
Our 37,000-bed capacity has yet to be utilised. If necessary, we may prepare 10000-11000 ICUs in Delhi by preparing 37,000 beds.
However, there isn’t much of a need for that right now,” the CM said in a statement after reviewing the Covid preparedness at the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) Hospital on Tuesday afternoon.
He added: “Today, I held a meeting with Dr Suresh Kumar, Director, LNJP and the entire team at LNJP Hospital. I came here to take stock of the Covid preparations. It treated the highest number of patients successfully.
More than 22,000 patients have returned home after receiving treatment at this facility.” Speaking on the Covid-19 restrictions, he said, “I would like to convey to them that these restrictions were imposed under compulsion.
I understand that we have to maintain a very delicate balance at this time. On the one hand, it concerns the employment of people, and if restrictions are imposed, people’s jobs will be jeopardised. On the other hand, if we do not impose limitations, your health and life will be jeopardised.”
Talking about the restrictions in the areas surrounding Delhi he said, “This I will appeal to the central government. We also requested the central government representatives who attended the DDMA (Delhi Disaster Management Authority) meeting that imposing limitations simply in Delhi would not work; you would have to include the entire NCR. They have assured that these limits would be implemented throughout the NCR.” Delhi reported a 25 per cent surge in Covid-19 cases after recording 19,166 fresh cases.
With this, the infection tally has climbed to 15,68,896. Meanwhile, the city has recorded 17 Covid deaths on the second consecutive day, pushing the death toll to 25,177.
