Commonwealth Games Village, Schools Being Turned Into Covid Facilities In Delhi

New Delhi:

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said the Commonwealth Games Village and some schools are being turned into facilities for Covid patients as the national capital struggles to cope with an exponential rise in cases.  Beds, oxygen and essential drugs are in short supply as Delhi logged an unprecedented 24,000 new cases over 24 hours on Saturday evening.

The Chief Minister held a cabinet meeting this morning, which was also attended by health minister Satyendar Jain.

At hospitals, people are struggling for beds as more than 90% of Delhi’s ICU beds with ventilators are occupied.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia flagged a coming crisis in oxygen supply, saying hospitals have stock left for a very limited period of time. The Delhi government, he said, has appealed to the Centre to supply more medical oxygen.

People who have tried to obtain oxygen cylinders from private suppliers say they are being told that it is out of stock.
