Delhi will screen all houses by July 6 via its plan to tackle Covid-19
New Delhi : Delhi government has churned out a revised 8-point plan to tackle the COVID-19 crisis under which all houses in the national capital will be screened till July 6.
The plan includes conducting sero-survey of 20,000 people across districts in the national capital and house-to-house screening by July 6, among other measures.
Earlier on Wednesday, Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia asked Union Home Minister Amit Shah, urging him to roll-back the order, issued by Lieutenant Governor (L-G) Anil Baijal.
"It’s not a matter of Amit Shah model versus Arvind Kejriwal model of fighting Covid-19. It’s about ensuring minimum inconvenience to the public and also the administrative machinery fighting against the pandemic is not overburdened," Sisodia said during a virtual briefing today.
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday announced that all those under home-isolation will be provided with pulse oximeters to measure oxygen levels every few hours.
“Once you are well, you can return it to the government,” the Delhi CM said adding that the Covid-19 situation, as of now, seems to be stabilizing.
“Patients under home-isolation can monitor their oxygen level and in case of drop, they can call on a number that we will provide and our team will immediately visit and administer oxygen to the patient. The patient will be rushed to the hospital if there is a requirement," he stated.
