Kejriwal said, ‘We had asked the people of Delhi whether Delhi’s hospitals should be open to all the states? 90 percent of the people say that as long as there is corona, Delhi hospitals should be reserved for the people of Delhi only.
He said, ‘As a precaution, elderly people should at least interact with their family members and others. The elderly and children try to stay in one room of their house.
At the same time, a five-member committee formed by the Delhi government has predicted that by the end of June, the number of corona patients in Delhi can reach at least one lakh. Based on this estimate, the committee asked the government to arrange an additional 15,000 beds to meet the needs of patients in the capital. Committee Chairman Dr. Mahesh Verma said that we have studied the trends of other cities like Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chennai. According to our calculations, by the end of June, the Corona infect population in the capital Delhi may cross one lakh.
