Delhi government will not impose lockdown, CM Arvind Kejriwal said he further added that Delhi Government is fully prepared for any situation caused by Covid -19 Omicron variant.
“We are fully prepared, and the Delhi government is capable of extending 37000 beds if needed.” CM pointed that the 37000 beds are yet to be utilized. In the future, if necessary, the Delhi government is capable of preparing 10,000 to 11,000 ICUs in Delhi by preparing 37000 beds. As seeing the situation there isn’t much of a need for the beds right now.
CM Arvind Kejriwal earlier today visited LNJP Hospital and scheduled the meeting with the Direction of the hospital DR Suresh Kumar and his entire team. He reported that he looked at the preparation in the hospital and was satisfied with the Covid preparations. And also stated that the hospital has the highest number of patients treated I.e 22,000 and have returned to their home successfully after recovering from this facility.
He also addressed Covid-19 restrictions 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 jeopardized. On the other hand, if we don’t impose limitations people’s health and life will be jeopardized.
He also stated further that as Covid cases rising enforcement of lockdown and restrictions only in Delhi will not help we should also consider the surrounding areas in Delhi NCR.
