COVID-19 situation in Delhi better than in June: Kejriwal

New Delhi, July 15

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said the COVID-19 situation in the national capital was better than in June but the war against the disease had not been won yet.  

Addressing an online media briefing, he said: “The COVID-19 situation in Delhi is under control but we do not have to be complacent. We will continue our preparations.”

He said: “My government’s first principle of combating the disease is that the COVID-19 fight cannot be won alone, that is why, the AAP dispensation sought cooperation from everyone, be it the Centre, hotels and other organisations.”

He also said the coronavirus situation in Delhi was better as compared to June.

There are 18,600 active cases of COVID-19 in Delhi, Kejriwal said, adding that only 4,000 beds had so far been occupied.

The Delhi government had also been conducting 20,000 to 23,000 COVID-19 tests every day, the CM added. PTI
