While the number of CoronaVirus cases have crossed 75,000 in the country, the national capital alone has registered over 10,000 cases. The number of cases is on a constant rise. On the morning of 14 May, the Health Department released a bulletin. It pointed out the number of active cases to be 7,998 after identifying 359 fresh new cases. The bulletin also mentioned 20 deaths between April and May according to the case sheets received by the auditing COVID-19 death committee.
The bulletin further analyses the percentage of deaths on an age-basis. Out of the 106, 58 were aged 60 or above, accounting for over 54 percent of COVID-19 deaths.
A mismatch found in the government records had sparked a controversy earlier. The Delhi government defended the accusations of under-reporting COVID-19 deaths in the capital. The authority put the blame on hospitals for not providing the reports on a timely basis. The Kejriwal-led government further went on to seek opinions on the situation post lockdown 3.0, ending 17 May. Suggestions received so far indicate a willingness to resume economic activities in the national capital. The general consensus stands in favor of accepting the new normal.
Overall, Delhi has crossed 10,000 mark of COVID-19 cases, losing 106 lives in total. You can keep track of COVID-19 updates on this webpage: Real-time CoronaVirus Updates |SJ Online Solutions
Let’s take a better look at how Delhi plans to move ahead.
When the controversy came to a still, the Delhi government introduced a standard operating procedure (SOP). Issued for hospitals and related health facilities in the city, the SOP explained a clearer procedure on reporting COVID-19 fatalities.
On Tuesday, the government sought suggestions from the residents of Delhi. The views were in respect of the post-lockdown 3.0 period. However, the authority did mention that lockdown could not be completely lifted.
The Hindustan Times reported earlier today- “The response to the CM’s call for suggestions has been overwhelming. We received over 4.76 lakh WhatsApp messages, nearly 10,700 email, around 39,000 recorded messages on call, and 22,700 responses in a petition at Change.org,” the chief minister’s office said.
The Chief Minister’s Office recorded the responses under variant categories. The categories include- Industrial and MSME operations, Transportation, Education, and regular activities such as commercial and non-commercial activities.
Furthermore, Delhi’s Transport Department is involved in discussions of developing a protocol for a secure public transport system.
While three Shramik trains are functioning to transport labour migrants, senior officials have suggested that lockdown related decisions would be taken under the purview of Centre’s guidelines.
