Covid virus in Delhi “very mild”, nothing to panic about: Kejriwal
Says most cases asymptomatic not requiring hospitalisation
New Delhi, Jan. 2 (Delhi Crown): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday assured Delhiites that unlike in April-May 2020 (2nd Covid wave), the Coronavirus was “very mild” now, as most of the patients are asymptomatic not requiring to be admitted in hospitals.
He said though his government was ready with 47,000 Oxygen beds, only 247 patients were admitted in hospitals as of now.
“This figure is coming down day by day, though new cases per day are rising. This means many of the new cases are asymptomatic not requiring hospitalisation,” said Kejriwal.
During his televised address on Sunday, the Delhi CM repeated at least 10 times that the Coronvirus was “Very Mild”, and that there was nothing to panic about.
He once again appealed to people in Delhi to observe caution, wear face-masks, maintain social distancing, wash hands with soap frequently, and other Covid protocols.
