New Delhi: In a media address today by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, he reveled that there is no need to panic as capital will not see any lockdown if people continue to wear masks and follow all the Covid-19 protocols. This media address comes after a scary spike in the reported covid-19 cases.

“COVID cases are rapidly rising. About 22,000 cases are expected in today’s health bulletin. Increasing cases concerning but need not be scared. I am saying so after analysing (comparing) data from the last wave.” says, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

National capital recorded 20,181 fresh cases of COVID-19, as the daily positivity rate rose to 19.6 per cent on Saturday.

“We don’t want to impose lockdown, we won’t if you wear masks. No intent for lockdown as of now. COVID-19 review meeting will be held tomorrow, on January 10 with DDMA.” tells Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the press conference today.

Delhi CM today’s media address was more like a reminder of ‘No panic situation’ as he said last week in a conference addressing media and the city.

Further he thanked for all the well-wishes he received during his home isolation period when he got covid-19 positive. He said he recovered and now he will again available for service of people.

He also compared the April-May 2021’s situation when similar number of cases were reported daily, he said almost more than 20,000 cases were daily reported then but death tally is very less as compared to second wave. 341 daily deaths were reported in April but yesterday when covid-19 positive cases crossed 20,000 only 7 deaths were reported. There is also very less hospitalisation in the third wave.

He also reminded people of the city to not take advantage of the situation and keep wearing masks, maintain social distancing and tomorrow in the DDMA’s meeting we will again analyse the situation. We are receiving good support and efforts from the central government and together we will be able to deal with the third wave as well.

He urged people to get vaccinated as soon as possible to curb the intensity of covid-19 infections.
