New Delhi, Apr 17: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said that the national capital is fast running out of beds, oxygen and the life-saving drug Remdesivir as it recorded an unprecedented 24,000 new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours.
“In the last 24 hours, there have been around 24,000 cases. A day before, there were around 19,000 cases. So the tally spiked only in a matter of 24 hours,” Arvind Kejriwal said in a televised address.
“We don’t know whether this is the peak of the pandemic in the Capital. The cases are rising. Every state has a threshold of medical facilities. Delhi too has its limit and we have reports of shortage of beds, oxygen, Remdesivir in the city,” Kejriwal said.
“We will keep a close eye on the situation for some days. If the situation deteriorates, we will take whatever step is needed to save your lives,” Kejriwal added.
