There is also talk of lockdown in the country capital amid increasing cases of coronavirus infection. Especially on the internet media, rumors are going on that a lockdown has been imposed in many districts of Maharashtra due to increasing in Corona cases. Now cases of corona are also increasing rapidly in Delhi. In such a situation, on Saturday, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain has given a big statement on the possibility of putting a lockdown in Delhi. Satyendra Jain has clearly stated that there is no possibility of a lockdown in Delhi at present nor is the lockdown a solution to the problem of coronavirus. He told reporters that there is no possibility of a lockdown in Delhi.
For the time being, we will keep an eye on Corona's affairs
Talking about the lockdown in Delhi, Satyendra Jain said that for the week, we will have to look at the trend regarding Coronavirus infection for a week. Only after this, it takes 3-4 weeks for any definite trend to come. Many times people also have a sense of laxity, as is happening these days. We are doing up to 90 thousand tests daily to control the corona, which is 5 times more than the country's average. Random testing is being done at the railway station and airport to check people coming from outside Delhi.
Solution in fight against Corona, not lockdown
Satyendra Jain said that there is no possibility of lockdown. First seen in lockdown in Delhi, there was an argument behind it. At that time nobody knew how this virus spread. Now the situation is different. During that time it was said that there is a 14-day cycle from being infected to ending the infection. Then the experts said that if all the activities are locked for 21 days then the virus will stop spreading. While there, the lockdown progressed, but the corona did not end. So there is no solution in the war against lockdown Coronavirus.
There will be around 90 thousand tests in Delhi every day
Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain has decided to conduct 85,000-90,000 tests daily in Delhi. This is 5 percent more than the national average. Along with this, emphasis will also be placed on tracing and isolation.
Beds will be extended on reading needs
Health Minister Satyendra Jain also said that Delhi's hospitals have an adequate number of beds. In hospitals, only about 20 percent of beds are in use, while 80 percent of beds are empty. We are watching it. If Corona cases increase, then we will also increase the number of beds.
What happens lockdown
In general language, lockdown is a lockout in a city / locality / town. Normally lockdown is an emergency system that is implemented only during a disaster or epidemic. Just as an institution or factory is shut down and there is a lockout, similarly a lockdown means that you do not leave the streets for unnecessary work. In the event of a lockdown, people in that area are not allowed to move out of their homes. Some discounts are given only for essential services.
