Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that only residents of the National Capital will be treated in the  Delhi’s hospitals till the time COVID pandemic lasts. The malls, restaurants and places of worship will open in the city from tomorrow. Kejriwal said the UT administration received over 7 lakh suggestions from the residents regarding the treatment of patients in Delhi hospitals. Kejriwal informed that his cabinet has taken the decision after considering the suggestions both from the residents and the expert panel which was constituted by the government. The expert panel under the chairmanship of Dr. Mahesh Verma, Vice-Chancellor of Indraprastha University, has stated in their report that Delhi would need around 15 thousand additional hospital beds by the end of this month, to take care of COVID patients. The panel also recommended that the health infrastructure in the city should be reserved for treating residents of the Capital, adding that if the government opens up hospitals for non-residents, all beds will be occupied within a very short span of time. He advised senior citizens and those with comorbidities to stay at home and take special precautions in view of the prevailing situation.  (courtesy to FabHotels for the above picture).
