The situation in the Indian capital, Delhi, is dire. In the last 24 hours, 357 people have died in Corona. The hospitals are overcrowded with corona patients. The number of deaths due to oxygen crisis is increasing. Twenty-five corona patients died at a Delhi hospital yesterday due to lack of oxygen. In such a situation, the ongoing lockdown in the capital has been extended for one week. This was reported in the Indian media The Hindu.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal told a news conference on Sunday that the lockdown would continue till 5 am on May 3.
“We gave the last six days of lockdown,” Kejriwal said. This was the last weapon we had against Corona. But corona infections are not diminishing despite the lockdown. The lockdown is being extended for one week by talking to each department.
The Delhi chief minister said the number of infections was 36-37 per cent at the beginning of the lockdown but now it has come down to 30 per cent. This rate of infection needs to be brought down further.
