Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain on Saturday ruled out any possibility of a lockdown in Delhi again. He categorically stated that putting a lockdown is not a solution to prevent the rapidly growing infection of the corona virus.
Satyendra Jain said that before the lockdown was imposed, it was an argument that no one was properly aware of how this virus spreads.
Satyendra Jain told reporters, “It takes 14 days for a man to become infected and recover from it. Experts said that by putting a lockdown for 21 days, the virus will be eradicated. Governments continue to extend the lockdown period but the virus has not been eradicated.” “I don’t think there is any solution to the lockdown problem. There is no possibility of a lockdown in Delhi again.”
However, he also said that there are sufficient beds in Delhi hospitals for corona infected patients and it can be increased if needed.
