Imposing no lockdown Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal
Imposing no lockdown Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. On January 9, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that there is no plan to impose lockdown in Delhi only if people wear masks (PTI reported). He said that no doubt increasing COVID cases are a matter of concern but people need not panic. Minimum restrictions will be imposed so that livelihoods are not affected. He also added that Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal and the central government are monitoring the COVID situation very closely.
Less deadly – compared data
During the virtual press conference, CM Kejriwal shared the data of the second and third of coronavirus. He said that on May 7, 2020, nearly 20,000 COVID beds were occupied whereas, on January 8, 2021, only 1500 beds were occupied despite having reported the same number of cases. So, he showed these data to make people aware of it, because very few people are required to go to the hospital.
No need to panic, follow the norms
He urged people to wear a mask and maintain social distancing norms. People need not go outside unnecessarily and take the vaccine to protect against the virus. A meeting will be held on Monday with the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) to further review the situation. The authority imposed a weekend curfew to curb the spread of infection. CM showed hope to overcome the third wave by just behaving responsibly.
