Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan feels that Delhi is one of the places where considering the current situation more stringent action needs to be taken to combat COVID-19.
The third phase of the Lockdown 3.0 has begun from May 4 to May 17 with some relaxations. The country has been in lockdown since March 24 .
“I should not comment on what more needs to be done in Delhi, as it may be taken as a political statement.
Connsidering the current status, I personally feel that more stringent action needs to be taken in the national capital to combat COVID-19, said Vardhan.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwl had earlier stated that it is time foe Delhi to re-open and people have to live with the coronavirus. As the long lockdown has hit the economy and the businesses hard.
I think that minimum relaxation should be given by Delhi government during coronavirus-induced lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19,” he said while speaking to reporters.
