On Saturday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urged the people of Delhi not to panic seeing the rising number of Covid-19 cases. He claimed Covid-19 cases in the national capital are rising because the Delhi government has increased the number of tests.
“We have doubled testing, started testing at markets, bus stands, Mohalla Clinics etc. Test, test, test. Isolate infected people and provide them good treatment. I have told officers not to worry if the numbers increase due to multi-fold testing (sic),” Arvind Kejriwal said in a tweet.
In another tweet, the Delhi CM said there is a sufficient number of hospital beds for Covid-19 patients. “Presently, there are 14,000 beds available in Delhi, of which only 5,000 are occupied,” he said.
