Covid-19: Delhi govt orders hospitals to remain on alert

New Delhi, April 15 : Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain said on Friday that all hospitals have been asked to remain on alert, amid the increasing cases of Covid-19 in Delhi. The Minister further said that new infections have increased in the national capital only in the past two days, but the government has already geared up to deal with any untoward situation. “The Delhi government is closely monitoring the situation and the government does not want to take any risk. We have completely overhauled our health infrastructure. Along with this, all hospitals have been advised to remain on alert amid the increasing cases of Coronavirus in Delhi. “To prevent the spread of Covid-19, the Delhi government is doing contact tracing of Corona patients. At the same time, RTPCR testing will also be increased if needed,” Jain told the reporters. Meanwhile, Jain urged to the people to get fully vaccinated at the earliest. “Prevention is better than cure. All those who have not yet taken the vaccine or have taken only the first dose, should be taken to their nearest health facility as soon as possible for complete vaccination,” he added. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also appealed to the public not to panic. “We are keeping a close eye on rising cases of Corona. Hospital admissions are not increasing, so there is no need to panic. Nothing to worry about as of now,” he said. ASH RJ
