Amid the second wave of coronavirus in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that “we will keep a close eye on the current situation of COVID-19.”
He said that “We will keep a close eye on the situation for some days. If the situation deteriorates, we will take whatever step is needed to save your lives.”
“We are receiving complaints that some labs are taking 2-3 days to give coronavirus reports to patients in Delhi. The reason is that these labs are taking more samples than their capacity,” he said.
Adding, he said that strict action will be taken against such labs that will not give a report within 24 hrs.
Meanwhile, Arvind Kejriwal said that directions have been given to take strict action against people who will found hoarding or black marketing medicines.
“I hope that we add 6,000 beds in two or three days. No one knows when the peak will come. Central govt gave 4100 beds in November but this time only 1800 beds have been given. I requested Dr. Harsh Vardhan to reserve 50 percent beds for COVID-19 patients,” Kejriwal said.
“Delhi has a limited number of ICU beds. Oxygen and ICU beds are decreasing very sharply. We are taking several steps to scale up beds capacity, he added.
Furthermore, he said that “Around 24,000 COVID-19 cases have been reported in Delhi in the last 24 hours, data will come shortly.”
