‘Over 3 lakh Covid patients recovered in Home Isolation’: Delhi CM Kejriwal

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said Delhi’s health system didn’t collapse during Covid due to reforms and better management.

Kejriwal was speaking at a Republic day event in Delhi.

The Chief Minister of Delhi even hoisted the Indian flag at the event at Delhi Secretariat.

The chief minister said despite drying up of tax revenue due to the pandemic, the AAP government managed to pay salaries to its employees.

While talking about the pandemic, Kejriwal said that over 3.12 lakh people recovered under home isolation that was started first in Delhi.

“In developed countries, patients were lying on floors in corridors.

We studied it and understood that everyone who got sick was taken to hospital, even those with mild symptoms. Doctors in Delhi came up with home isolation.

We decided that asymptomatic patients would be treated at home,” said Kejriwal.
