He also expressed concerns over vaccine shortage within the light of a possible third wave of Covid-19 within the country, while stressing on the necessity to organize against it.
“In the last 24 hours, we asked several sections of individuals what to try to to and therefore the larger opinion is that the lockdown should be extended by another week. If we open everything now, there’s a risk that we may lose all gains on the Covid-19 front we’ve remodeled the last one month. The lockdown was alleged to last till 5 am tomorrow. Now, we’ve decided to increase it till 5 am next Monday (May 31),” said Kejriwal during a live streamed video press briefing.
He further said, “However, if the curve continues to say no like this for every week , we’ll start a phased un-lockdown process from May 31. We cannot open everything at one go. there’s an immense risk in it. So, the relaxations need to be implemented during a phased way. I hope people will cooperate during this .”
