Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said 75 per cent of COVID-19 cases in the city are asymptomatic or with mild symptoms.

The chief minister said the government has also issued an order for requisition of ambulances of private hospitals, adding that the decision has been taken in the wake of shortage of state-run ambulances.

“They (private ambulances) will have to be pressed into service when the government requires their service,” Kejriwal said while addressing an online media briefing.

The government has made arrangements for treatment of those at their homes with mild COVID-19 symptoms in accordance with the Centre’s guidelines.

“There are 6,923 coronavirus cases so far in Delhi and 2,069 patients have recovered and 73 have died,” Kejriwal said during a video conference.

After Maharashtra and Gujarat, the national capital has recorded the third-highest number of Covid-19 cases in the country.
