Kejriwal Says Will Follow L-G’s Decision on Hospitals in Delhi

Coronavirus LIVE Updates: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said L-G Anil Baijal’s order on hospitals would be implemented amid a political slugfest in the Capital even as cases rise. Kejriwal, who was addressing the media a day after he tested negative for Covid-19, said: “L-G’s directives will be implemented in letter and spirit, this is not the time for disagreements or arguments.” He also asked people to promote social distancing and usage of masks as a people’s movement “just like the odd-even scheme”. L-G Baijal had overturned the decision of the AAP government to reserve Delhi government hospitals and some private ones for residents.

Delhi’s Covid-19 tally has crossed the 31,000-mark with the death toll at 905, latest figures released by the Arvind Kejriwal government reveal, even as the Capital sees a slugfest over the pandemic which has infected more than 2.6 lakh people in the country. According to the latest figures, Delhi recorded 1,366 new cases, taking the total to 31,309 and 31 deaths adding up to 905 in the last 24 hours. The Capital also saw a total of 11,861 recoveries, while 14,556 are in home isolation. The rising number of cases has not just become a cause for concern but also led to a political war of words, with BJP MP and former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir criticising the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led government for the rapid rise in the number of coronavirus cases in the national capital. Accusing Kejriwal of lying since the first day when the pandemic broke out, Gambhir said all the claims made by the AAP dispensation on health infrastructure in the city have fallen flat.
