Terming the present situation of Covid-19 in the Capital worrisome, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday urged people to stay at home as much as possible, as the ongoing peak has surpassed the intensity of November 2020, with Delhi recording 10,732 fresh Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours.
A day after the government imposed some fresh restrictions limiting the capacity of cinema halls, bars, restaurants, buses etc., Kejriwal said the government is not in favour of lockdown, but still imposed those restrictions as there was not other option.
“Do not get hospitalised if your case is not severe, if you can be treated in home isolation too. Delhi has the best home isolation facilities. We will send teams to your home. If you occupy a bed in a hospital which could have been used for a person whose condition is severe, then the health infrastructure comes under stress and none can say, Delhi may need lockdown then,” Kejriwal said.
Qouting the 24-hour tally of fresh infections in the Capital, before the numbers are officially released, Kejriwal said, “In the last 24 hours, 10,732 cases have been recorded in the Capital. A day before, there were 7,900 cases. And the day before yesterday, the number was 8,521. So the fourth wave of the pandemic is more dangerous than the third wave in November,” the Chief Minister said.
