Addressing a online media briefing, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said his government will implement Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal’s order overturning the decision on reservation of Delhi government-run and private hospitals for Delhiites.
Kejriwl during his briefing also thanked the people for their wishes and blessings after he had recovered from COVID-19 symptoms and was tested negative.
Delhi will need 1.5 lakh beds by July 31 once people start coming to the city for treatment from other states, Kejriwal further said.
He said that out of the 1.5 lakh beds, it is estimated that 80,000 beds will be required for Delhiites.
“We have a big challenge ahead. We all have to fight against COVID-19 together,” the chief minister said.
The Aam Aadmi Party government will try to make arrangements to provide treatment to all, he said, asking people to make the fight against the novel coronavirus a mass movement.
“This is not the time to do politics. We all have to fight COVID-19 together,” Kejriwal said.
