Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said the government is four steps ahead of the novel coronavirus. The government is procuring beds to meet the health emergency in the capital.

The government is planning to have 9,500 beds ready by next week, while 6,500 beds are ready as of now.

“As a CM, I would like to assure all of you that we are four times ahead of the virus. We are also going to launch a mobile application to help people access correct information at the time of any health emergency. This will be having all details of the hospitals concerned, numbers and others,” said Kejirwal addressing a digital press conference.

The CM accepted that the city is witnessing a rise in COVID cases. The total tally of cases is 17,386 and 398 people have reportedly died.

He also asked his political opponents not to get involved in any of political mudslinging and avoid sharing fake videos.

“The doctors and nurses are working towards minimizing the death rate in the capital. The government servants are working 24x7 for welfare of the people. Such things affect their confidence,” he added.

According to AAP chief, only 2,100 people have been hospitalised, the rest are undergoing treatment at their homes.
