Delhi government is also urging the hospitals to stall non-emergency operations so that Covid-19 patients get the maximum care.

For the upcoming Chhath Puja, the CM said that the government wants the citizens to celebrate the festival very nicely. But if 200 people are entering a pond at a time, and even if just one of them is COVID-19 positive, all of the people will contract the infection.

The CM further said that they are arranging for over 1400 ICU beds. This includes 663 beds in Delhi government hospitals and 750 at Centre-run facilities. He also informed that his government will be implementing the decision to reserve 80 percent of the ICU beds in private hospitals for COVID-19 patients.

Accessing the increase in cases in the national capital, the AAP party MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj said that he will increase the number of RTPCR tests from around 18000 to 27000. He will also market associations if any decision is taken on shutting down markets in view of the rise in positive cases.

The AAP MLA also suggested that market associations should have a chance to present their views. And they should also take precautionary measures to check the spread of the virus.

The third wave of the deadly coronavirus in the national capital is still going strong. The city has seen an 11.3 percent rise in cases since last week. This has taken the city’s total cases past 500000. With more and more patients coming under treatment, Delhi is now one of only eight states and Union territories with a recovery rate below 90 percent.
