2 years ago
On Friday, Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that the Delhi government would provide free education to children whose parents died as a result of Covid-19, as well as financial assistance to all those, especially senior citizens, who have lost their family’s sole source of income.
Kejriwal said at a digital press conference that daily Covid-19 cases have dropped below 10,000 for the first time in a long time, with nearly 8,500 cases reported in the last 24 hours and the positivity rate dropping to 12%. Around 1,200 ICU beds are nearly ready to provide timely care to severe Covid-19 patients.
Despite our best efforts, we have been unable to save many Delhi people in recent days. For the children who have lost both parents in COVID 19, the Delhi government will cover all of their educational and living expenses. There are also a number of senior citizens who have lost their earning children. All families who have lost their sole earning member to Covid-19 will receive financial assistance from the Delhi government,” Kejriwal said.
The lockdown, according to the chief minister, is likely to be extended for another week. On Monday, the present lockdown is set to end at 5 a.m. “Even today, there are 8,500 new COVID cases. We have to reduce this to zero at all costs, so we must maintain precautions at all times.
