He said that the Omicron variant has reached the world from South Africa. Had international flights been banned in time, the situation could have been controlled to a great extent earlier. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal kept requesting about this, but the Center did not pay heed.
Omicron coronavirus cases increases in Delhi.
He said, people coming from abroad are being corona tested at Delhi airport and if found infected, they are being sent for isolation or being treated. No need to panic now. The Health Minister said that only four percent of the beds in Delhi are being treated for corona infected, while about 96 percent of the beds are vacant.
The Delhi government is preparing an additional 37 thousand beds. Such strict rules have also been imposed in Delhi because Delhi is the capital of the country and only direct flights from abroad come to Delhi. Apart from this, people from different parts of the country reach Delhi. Jain said that the Delhi government is ready on every front against Corona. Adolescents between the ages of 15 and 18 have started getting the vaccine. In the capital, 100 percent people have been given the first dose and about 75 percent have been given the second dose. Sufficient stock is also available for administering the booster dose.
