New Delhi: Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan, on Sunday, visited the Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital and said that analysis of the government data has been satisfactory in the past few days.
He said, “I’m being told that around 95 patients, out of the 177 admitted here, will be discharged by today evening. Analysis of our data in the past few days has been satisfactory. The data is improving every day.”
“The doubling rate of patients in the last 14 days was 6.2 days. When it was calculated for the last 7 days it turned out to be 7.2 days. It has turned out to be 9.7 days for the past 3 days. It is a good indication,” he further added.
No lockdown relaxations for Delhi
Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on Sunday, presented a grim picture of the national capital and said that there was no possibility of relaxation of any aspect of the lockdown in Delhi currently.
He also said that a review meeting about the same would take place after a week. “Currently, lockdown is necessary. No relaxations should be given in the hotspots in the city. On 27th April, a review meeting will be held again,” Kejriwal said during a press briefing while adding that the situation in Delhi is volatile but is still under control.
He further said that asymptomatic cases are more of a cause for worry. Talking about fresh virus cases in the national capital, the Chief Minister said, “All the 186 COVID19 positive cases that were reported yesterday were asymptomatic, they didn’t know they had Coronavirus. This is more worrying.”
