Ministers and others who met him in recent days have been advised to go on sel-quarantine. All meetings and other engagements of the Chief Minister have been cancelled or put off.

NEW DELHI, June 8: The people's Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, is taken ill. He will undergo test for coronavirus on Tuesday. He has been suffering from fever and sore throat since Sunday. It is a matter of concern that he is a chronic diabetic.

All the Ministers and others who met him in recent days have been advised to go on sel-quarantine. All meetings and other engagements of the Chief Minister have been cancelled or put off.

On Sunday he had addressed a virtual press conference at which he announced that since the coronavirus cases are spiralling in Delhi the hospitals here should be reserved for the residents of Delhi.

He also announced that the borders with the neighbouring States would reopen on Monday, after a week of closure.

Kejriwal said as the medical treatment here is free and better people from outside can overwhelm the hospitals here in a matter of just "three days." In this hour of crisis created by coronavirus epidemic, where will the local residents go, especially as in the past few days the cases have been shooting up. What were those Governments in other States doing in the last three months - enough time to build up the needed health infrastructure.

H had also come done too hard on some private hospitals for what was reported as blackmarketing in hospital beds, quoting as high as Rs 8 lakh for an admission.

Kejriwal said 90 per cent of the residents as also an expert committee had suggested that hospitals be reserved for the local people till the coronavirus crisis is over.

In the last 24 hours Delhi had reported 1,282 new cases of coronavirus and the total went up to 28,936.

Meanwhile, there is widespread fear if community spread of the epidemic has started in Delhi. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia is holding a meeting to assess the situation.

The total cases recorded so far in Delhi were 28,936 of which 10,999 had been discharged and 812 patients died.
