Delhi CM orders Hospitals to test every Corona Suspect, urged Asymptomatic not to increase burden

Delhi Chief Minister has announced to pass order to test every Corona suspect. On Saturday Delhi Health Ministry passed order & guidelines on Covid19. In its order Delhi Health Department stated that all Hospitals are directed to test Corona suspects and it must be noted that if there are any Covid suspect admissions in the hospital facility they must be kept in separate ward and therefor the number of isolation beds dedicated for COVID patients must not be allocated to any suspect patients.

In his address Chief Minister added that Delhi Government thought of making the information about number of beds and ventilators in hospitals transparent. "There was uproar over it as if we committed a crime”. Some hospitals are denying admission to COVID19 patients. I am warning those who think they will be able to do black-marketing of beds using the influence of their protectors from other parties, you will not be spared, said Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

“As per Union Health Ministry guidelines, asymptomatic & mild symptom cases don't need hospitalization. Any mild or asymptomatic patient has to be discharged by the hospital within 24 hours of admission”. CM urged asymptomatic people not to take Covid19 test as it could increase the burden over hospitals and could impact testing facilities.

In his press address Delhi CM said “we have launched a mobile App to stop the black marketing of beds. This kind of app is unique not only in Country but across world, though it will take time for full transparency but it’s performing fine, said Delhi CM.
