No possibility of lockdown in Delhi: Satyendra Jain

Health Minister dismissed any possibility of imposing lockdown in Delhi on Saturday, saying it was not a solution to check the spread of the coronavirus that is again surging rapidly.
According to Satyendar Jain there was a logic behind the lockdown enforced earlier as nobody knew then how the virus propagates.
“It follows a 14-day cycle — between a person catching the infection and recovering from it. Experts said the virus will die if a lockdown is imposed for 21 days,” Jain told reporters.
“Authorities kept on extending the lockdown, but the virus did not die. I don’t think lockdown is a solution,” he said.
There is “no possibility” of imposing another lockdown in the city, Jain said.
The minister also added that there were enough hospital beds available for coronavirus patients and it could be increased if the need arises.
Over 1,500 coronavirus cases for the second day reported in Delhi on on Friday, while nine more people, succumbed to the pathogen, the Health Department said.
