Coronavirus Situation In Delhi ‘Under Control,’ Says CM Arvind Kejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal asserted that the government has managed to slow down the spread of Coronavirus and the situation in the capital is under control.
In a press conference today, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the coronavirus situation in the capital is “under control.” He also revealed that the current figures fall short of the predictions for June 2020. The number of active cases that had been predicted for the end of June was 60,000, but only around 26,000 remain active at the time, he said.
He disclosed that the number of cases detected each day has also gone down from last week, from 4,000 a day to 2,500 a day. He also informed the media about the number of deaths due to COVID-19 in Delhi have gone down. He said that there was a day when 125 had died from the virus, but right now, only around 60 to 65 people are losing their lives.
A key proponent of all these numbers is the testing facility. Arvind Kejriwal said that the Delhi government has increased the number of tests conducted on a daily basis. Last week between 16,000 and 21,000 tests were done every day.
