20 April 2020 Current Events COVID-19: No Relaxation of Lockdown in Delhi Says Arvind Kejriwal

A day ahead of the scheduled relaxation to be announced on April 20, Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that restrictions would not be alleviated in Delhi as the number of positive COVID-19 cases is speedily increasing in the state. This comes in the wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address last week about the extended lockdown till May 3 where some relaxation was to be given in the districts that do not have any hotspots. Whereas, Delhi has 11 districts and all of them have been identified as hotspots. The Chief Minister showed concern about children not being able to attend school, and livelihoods being affected. But he also emphasised that if we “fall short of hospital beds and ventilators” like Italy and Spain, we won’t be able to forgive ourselves. With 77 hotspots, Delhi’s total number of positive Coronavirus cases stands at 1,893, including 42 fatalities.
