Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday blamed pollution for the current increase in COVID-19 cases in the national capital. However, he hoped that situation should come under control in the next 7-10 days. 

Addressing a press conference, Kejriwal said one of the main reasons behind the fresh surge in COVID-19 cases in Delhi is pollution.
