Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has sought a detailed report from State Health Secretary on factors responsible for COVID-19 deaths in the national capital so that all possible measures can be taken to reduce it further.

An official release said that the detailed analytical report on COVID related deaths in Delhi will aid the implementation of more stringent measures to reduce fatalities. It will also help mitigate the other causes that have added to the casualties, such as co-morbidities, age and health condition.

The release said that the death rate in Delhi has seen a sharp decline as  the highest number of deaths on a single day in June was 120, which has now come down to 50. The measures taken by the Delhi government, such as the increase in the number of ICU beds in the hospitals, installation of more oxygen beds and plasma bank has reduced the death rate and the positivity ratio. To bring the death rate to zero, the Delhi government will prepare further steps to be taken after obtaining a detailed analysis of the Covid-19 deaths from the Health Secretary.

The Health Secretary has assured the Chief Minister that he will soon prepare and submit a detailed analysis of the deaths related to Covid-19, so that the Delhi government can execute further measures to reduce the death rate.
