The government screened them and admitted in hospitals after detecting them as asymptomatic n symtomatic. After their cure, all were send to their homes. Since, then guidance and knowledge was little n also shortage of beds the cases multiplied expeditiously. The government had no option but to improve its shattered economy and learn to live, work n fight with the pandemic. The government asked the people and it was after their collective advise that the lockdown was lifted on 6th May.
After the massive surge in Covid 19 cases in Delhi, Kejrival said that the Delhi government has in the last one month enhanced the number of beds in Delhi hospitals and reserved 40% beds for Covid 19 patients.

Earlier there were several flaws in the testing but today all is well. We took action against several erring labs. Kejrival thanked the central government for giving them enough number of Rapid testing kids initially, now purchased by the Delhi government.
Regarding the third weapon of the Oximeter Kejriwal said that the govt of Delhi has now started suppling of oximeters to those patients who are in isolation and suffer from breathing problems. This has immensely helped the patients having problem in breathing due to oxygen shortages.
