To keep a closer check at the growing number of infections in the National Capital region, the New Delhi Government will scan every single household by July 6th.
On Tuesday, the Indian Capital’s coronavirus tally crossed the 66k mark, prompting the Arvind Kejriwal government to push for micro-level testing, according to media reports. Plans are to test all the houses in the containment zones by June 30th, and by July 6th, every single house in the National Capital Region.
In a course of just three days – Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – New Delhi recorded 3k new cases and on Monday, another round of over 2.9k cases were registered. According to reports, there have been so far 86 fatalities. The Arvind Kejriwal government in meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah announced the Coronavirus Action plan on Tuesday.
Delhi CM Kejriwal recently announced that many banquet halls in the city will be turned into coronavirus care centers,, with temporary beds, and oxygen reserved for each patient.
“Today, in a banquet hall, we started the 100-bed Corona Center. There is oxygen for every bed. Now in this way, Karona centers will be built in many banquet halls all over Delhi,” Kejriwal wrote in a Tweet.
Just recently, the Delhi government has reportedly protested against the Center imposed form of tackling coronavirus, which involves positive patients to visit one of the many quarantine centers in Delhi.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia wrote to the Union Home Minister urging him to ‘intervene’ and roll back the current order, citing commoner’s inconveniences.
“I have told Amit Shah that this is not ‘your model versus my model’ fight. We have to minimise the inconvenience for people,” Mr. Sisodia told reporters via video conference.
The latest health bulletin updates reflect more than 70k infections and 24 fatalities in the last 24-hours. More than 41k patients have recovered so far, with more than 2k discharged in the last 24-hours. Currently, there are 26,588 active patients.
