20 to 23 thousand COVID19 tests being conducted in Delhi every day: CM Kejriwal

@ArvindKejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said around 20 to 23 thousand COVID-19 tests are being conducted in the city every day and the national capital is in a better situation as compared to June.
 
Briefing media in New Delhi this afternoon, Mr Kejriwal said there were 4,100 beds in Delhi as on 1st June and today there are 15,500 beds. He said there are 2,100 ICU beds, of which 1,100 are vacant. He stressed that people have the confidence today that in case they need to be hospitalised, there will be no shortages.
 
Mr Kejriwal said as per estimates, 2.25 lakh cases were predicted by 15 July in Delhi but after united efforts, the cases today are half of the prediction. The Chief Minister said if the Delhi Government had decided to battle COVID19 alone, it would have failed.
 
He added that the AAP government reached out to everyone including the central government, NGOs and religious organisations. He thanked all parties including BJP and Congress for their contribution. He however said that the battle against COVID 19 is far from won.
