No Relief in Lockdown for Delhiites, Arvind Kejriwal



Arvind Kejriwal

Delhiites won’t get relaxation in terms of lockdown from April 20. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that we need to exercise some restraint for the time being in Delhi to relax the lockdown conditions. Delhi is the capital of the country and there are a lot of corona cases. Cases are constantly increasing in Delhi. If the lockdown is relaxed then the situation may become even more frightening, Kejriwal said.

He said that the government has decided not to give relief in lockdown at present. This will trouble people, but this is an effective way to avoid corona. The CM said that after taking the opinion of the experts after a week, we can consider relaxing the terms of the lockdown, but for the moment it is not possible to give relaxation in the lockdown.

He said that all the districts of the state are declared as hot spots. In the last few days, the cases of Corona has increased rapidly. On Saturday, 736 case tests were reported in Delhi, out of which 186 patients have turned positive. All of them did not know that they had corona. They were roaming around with it. He said that I have ordered today that the rapid tests of those who come to the food center should be carried out and all the food distributors should have rapid tests. In today’s date, seventy settlement zones have been formed. There have been no Corona cases where people have followed the lockdown.

CM said that today there are roughly 1900 Corona cases in Delhi. 26 of them are in ICU and 6 are on the ventilator. The decision to lockdown would not have been taken, our situation would have been similar to other countries, he added. Those who came from outside brought the corona. What happened inside Markaz was the biggest hit in Delhi. Keeping all these things in mind, we have thought that there will be no relaxation in the conditions of lockdown.

He said that the situation in Delhi is very sensitive. Many positive cases have been reported in which the symptoms of corona are not visible.
