Coronavirus LIVE Updates: Will Follow L-G’s Decision on Hospitals, Says Kejriwal, Estimates Delhi Will Need 1.5 Lakh Beds by July; Rajasthan Seals Borders as Cases Rise

Coronavirus LIVE Updates: Delhi’s Covid-19 tally has crossed the 31,000-mark with the death toll at 905, latest figures released by the Arvind Kejriwal government reveal, even as the Capital sees a slugfest over the pandemic which has infected more than 2.6 lakh people in the country. According to the latest figures, Delhi recorded 1,366 new cases, taking the total to 31,309 and 31 deaths adding up to 905 in the last 24 hours. The Capital also saw a total of 11,861 recoveries, while 14,556 are in home isolation. The rising number of cases has not just become a cause for concern but also led to a political war of words, with BJP MP and former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir criticising the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led government for the rapid rise in the number of coronavirus cases in the national capital. Accusing Kejriwal of lying since the first day when the pandemic broke out, Gambhir said all the claims made by the AAP dispensation on health infrastructure in the city have fallen flat.

India’s Covid-19 tally saw a record addition of nearly 10,000 cases on Tuesday to cross 2.6 lakh as hundreds more tested positive for the dreaded virus in several states and union territories. The Delhi government said the national capital itself may see 5.5 lakh cases by July-end at the current rate. The Union Health Ministry said central teams have been deployed in 15 states and UTs with districts or municipal bodies witnessing major spurt in cases to assist the local administrations in containment and management of the outbreak.
