New Delhi: The Delhi Government is prepared to handle the Covid- 19 even if it spreads, said Chief Minister Aravind Kejriwal. Speaking to the media persons on Friday he said that is still no community transmission of Covid- 19, as the number of Covid- 19 cases in the capital climbed to 384. “Community spread of the virus is not taking place in Delhi yet and there is no need to panic. The situation is under control,” he said.
These cases included 259 who were evacuated from the Markaz or religious centre of Islamic missionary group Tableeghi Jamaat which violated rules and held a massive congregation in Delhi’s Nizamuddin area last month with attendees from countries like Malaysia and Kyrgyzstan. Kejriwal said that five more people have died in the national capital due to Covid- 19 and one of them was a person who attended the Nizamuddin event.
The chief minister also launched a Whatsapp helpline for people to enquire about Covid- 19, food banks, shelters among others.
