Kejriwal lauds united effort in checking Covid spread; warns of complacency

New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday lauded the concerted efforts of all the stakeholders in containing the spread of coronavirus in the national capital. He said that the Delhi government could not have achieved this alone. 

Kejriwal thanked the central government, NGOs, religious organisations, doctors and nurses for their relentless efforts to fight against the coronavirus pandemic. He also thanked Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and Indian National Congress (INC).

Kejriwal shared that 2.25 lakh cases were predicted by July 15 but Delhi has now approximately 1.15 lakh cases, of which 18,664 cases are active. He said that the cases are now half of the prediction and it has happened due to united efforts. 

“Delhi is doing better, as compared to June, but it does not mean we have won the war against coronavirus,” Kejriwal said. 

Sharing the preparations to contain the virus, Kejriwal said that on June 1, there were 4,100 beds in the national capital, today there are 15,500 beds. 

In the end, Kejriwal warned against any complacency. He said, “We have done better in comparison to June but that does not mean that we have won the battle. Coronavirus cases can again shoot up. We have to be careful with our precautions,” he concluded.
