After meeting the market associations, Kejriwal tweeted, “Met representatives of market associations. I removed their anxieties, government does not wish to shut any market. They assured anyone not wearing a mask in the market will be provided free by market associations. All shops will also be asked to keep spare masks and hand sanitizers.”

In another tweet, Delhi CM said, “Our Aam Aadmi Party MLAs, MPs, councilors and volunteers, all of you also go to public places and distribute free masks to those who are not wearing masks. This is the greatest patriotic and human service. I also want to request all political parties to tell their volunteers to go out on the road and distribute free masks. Let us stop the spread of corona by joint effort.”

The Delhi CM said that despite the rapid spread of Corona in Delhi, our doctors, nurses, and medical staff have done commendable work. They are constantly treating COVID patients without getting tired. For this, all the doctors, nurses, and medical staff deserve to be appreciated.

Under the leadership of CM Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi government is taking all measures to control the spread of coronavirus in the national capital and provide better treatment to patients. Constant efforts are also being made to ensure that Delhi residents do not suffer due to the shortage of ICU beds in hospitals. 

Seeing the shortage of ICU beds, the Chief Minister has appealed to increase ICU beds by meeting with doctors in GTB and DDU hospitals. After his efforts, 663 additional ICU beds will be increased in Delhi government hospitals within the next few days. The Centre also provided 750 ICU beds

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister also sought the support of all political parties in an all-party meeting convened on Thursday and appealed to them to raise awareness regarding wearing masks among Delhiites.
