Talking about the success of the lockdown, Kejriwal said that the effect of the lockdown is being seen in Delhi. Since April 26, there has been a gradual decrease in new cases and the rate of infection has also been seen to decrease in the last two-three days. Gradually, things are becoming normal. These are good signs for us.
Corona overcame in lockdown
Kejriwal said that there was a lockdown in Delhi till 5 am on Monday. Corona cases in Delhi are rapidly decreasing during the lockdown and recovery rates are seen increasing.
