As per the latest update 2081, Coronavirus cases have been recorded and 47 have died in Delhi 2081 COVID-19 cases have been reported in Delhi till yesterday night. Of these, 431 have recovered & 47 have lost their lives due to the virus. Currently, there are 1603 active cases,’ as Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has mentioned in a press conference.
CM Kejriwal also mentioned that 30 lakhs out ration card will be provided free ration by the govt. Through the P. D. S scheme. In Delhi, nearly 1 crore ration cardholders are being given ration for free.
Free ration distribution is proposed to combat Coronavirus effects during the lockdown. It helps people below the poverty line to access grain for free for 3 months during the lockdown. But for migrant workers and daily workers without ration cards were not able to grasp this opportunity thus Delhi govt. ensured free ration for nonrational cardholders.
मरने वालों में से 80 प्रतिशत लोग 50 साल से ज्यादा उम्र के थे, इनमें से 83 प्रतिशत लोग ऐसे थे जो किसी और बीमारी से भी ग्रस्त थे, इसलिए अपने परिवार के ऐसे लोगों का विशेष ध्यान रखें जो ज्यादा उम्र के हैं और जिनको कोई बीमारी है: दिल्ली मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल pic.twitter.com/kB3y1jthP2— ANI_HindiNews (@AHindinews) April 21, 2020
It’s an effective method to ensure food to all when India has 3 times more buffer stock than actually needed. In this situation, it is wise to distribute ration for free to all underprivileged and low-income groups.
Delhi govt. has also denied relaxation in lockdown as C. M has mentioned that people's safety is a top priority for them and if the virus began to spread then the healthcare system can collapse and it would be difficult for govt. to stop the spread of the virus in such dense cities.
As cases of COVID 19 are remarkably increasing in Delhi, it becomes challenging for the Delhi govt. to take effective steps and we encounter in some day or other, ministers of Delhi govt. Come in public to expose cases or measures that are being taken to ensure the minimization of the spreading of Coronavirus.
