Arvind Kejriwal Holds Review Meeting As COVID-19 Situation In Delhi Worsens
Delhi registered 1,544 cases on Tuesday – its highest single-day tally in over a month.
There has been a steady rise in the number of COVID-19 cases in Delhi and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hence called for a high-level meeting to review the state’s measures against the pandemic. Following the meeting, the Delhi CM said that seeing the “marginal increase” in coronavirus cases in the state over the past few days, testing rates in the national capital would be doubled to around 40,000 per day as a precautionary measure.
Kejriwal also made it known that his government’s primary strategy for containing the COVID-19 outbreak hasn’t been changed. “I urge people to keep getting tested. People think they don’t have major symptoms so no need to test… please do not do that. Please get tested. If you have COVID, get isolated at home till you’re cured. So, please keep getting tested,” he said in a video address. He also pointed out that the recovery rate in the city is over 90 per cent, as opposed to the national average of around 76 per cent
