“In this wave, Delhi recorded maximum 28,000 cases in a day. The scale at which we’re creating infrastructure, we’ll be able to deal even if 30,000 daily cases are reported in next wave,” he said.

Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain also made an inspectional visit to a COVID-19 care centre located near GTB hospital earlier today.

“We’re left with vaccine stock vaccines for 3-4 days. We’re placed orders with companies but I think Central govt is allocating the vaccines because we get letter from Central govt about the stock that we would get in a month. We request Centre to give us more vaccines,’ he said.
