Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal prepares for third wave, increases oxygen beds
New Delhi : The number of daily coronavirus cases has shown a dip from record high and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is not letting his guards down as he announces more oxygen beds to stay prepared for third wave of coronavirus.
Addressing reporters in the national capital, CM Arvind Kejriwal said that they are preparing for 30,000 daily cases of coronavirus in the third wave. In the second wave, Delhi recorded around 28,000 daily cases during the peak.
He also mentioned that the Delhi government has asked Centre to provide more coronavirus vaccines so that they can boost the vaccination drive further.
"We're left with vaccine stock vaccines for 3-4 days. We're placed orders with companies but I think Central govt is allocating the vaccines because we get letter from Central govt about the stock that we would get in a month. We request Centre to give us more vaccines,' he said.
Meanwhile, BJP attacked CM Arvind Kejriwal for being irresponsible towards the development of national capital.
Addressing a virtual press conference, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra cited a RTI reply to say that the Kejriwal government has spent around ₹805 crore on advertisements since 2015 but not opened a single new hospital in the city.
