While he agreed to Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal’s order overruling his government’s decisions on coronavirus, Kejriwal said that the capital city will require at least 1.5 lakh beds by July 31 once people start coming in from other states for the treatment.
Out of them, it is estimated that 80,000 will be required for Delhiites, the chief minister said earlier in the day, adding that the calculation is based on numbers that showed 50% of the beds in hospitals in Delhi were occupied by those from other states before the coronavirus pandemic.
