New Delhi: As a discussion on the management of Covid-19 ended during the special one-day session of the Delhi assembly, Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday that the highest tests per day per million in the world were currently being conducted in Delhi.
Kejriwal said 3,057 tests per million inhabitants were being conducted daily in Delhi, while the same was around 3,000 in the UK, 1,388 in the US, 2,311 in Russia and 858 in Peru. The pan-India number was 819 tests per million per day. The CM reference was for daily tests in recent days. When it comes to cumulative tests, US, UK, Russia, etc. All have much higher numbers (about 2.8 loop tests per million). Also, daily evidence levels have dropped in countries that have peaked.
About 60,000 tests are being performed every day in Delhi. Andhra Pradesh is in second place with 1,362 tests per million population, Gujarat in third place with 1,000 tests, Karnataka 983, Haryana 990, Maharashtra 802 and Uttar Pradesh 670. We have tested about 21 lakh people so far, which is 11% of the population of Delhi. No other country or city in the world has tested 10% of its total population, Kejriwal said.
Before the rapid antigen (RAT) test began on June 18, 5,000-7,000 tests were being conducted daily in the city. Initially, it was used in restricted areas. Later, as more RAT kits became available, testing was expanded to all 11 districts. At the time, Delhi was facing its first severe crisis and nearly 4,000 new cases were being added every day. The government stepped up operations to test, track and isolate positive cases to reduce the spread of the disease.
Test growth was achieved mainly by expanding RAT as RT-PCR tests remained below 10,000. On July 30, 21,658 tests were performed. Of this, 6,246 (29%) were done using RT-PCR, while 15,412 (71%) were done through RAT. The data show that RT-PCR tests remained between 14% and 20% of the total tests. From 6 to 11 September, the percentage of RT-PCR tests was 26%, 34%, 22%, 20%, 15% and 14%, respectively.
Responding to opposition leader Ramvir Singh Bidhuri attributing Covid management in Delhi to the Centers’ interventions, Chief Minister Kejriwal said, I am not saying that Covid management in Delhi is 100% accurate. We are ready to correct mistakes. If we are at fault, you should also correct our mistakes. Delhi has chosen us both.
CM said more tests would result in more positive cases. We should not be afraid because of these numbers. We must be afraid of death and not allow their number to increase. The government has conducted micro-audits of hospitals and taken various measures to reduce the death rate, he added.
The death rate in Delhi is 0.6%, which I think is the lowest among all states. Delhi was the first in the world to introduce isolation at home after learning that hospitals were overcrowded with patients and many of them were lying on the street. We have treated 1,15,254 people in isolation at home so far. Of these, 16,568 people are still in isolation at home. Only 30 people have died from 1.25 lakh people in home isolation, which is 0.03% of the total number, probably the smallest in the world, Kejriwal said.
Speaking about the world’s first plasma bank being created in Delhi, Kejriwal said, The work we started in April and May was approved by the US President on 19 August. About 1,965 people were given plasma in Delhi.
Referring to the influx of patients from outside Delhi, CM said, So far, we have treated 5,264 people from outside Delhi. I hope other countries also invest in health infrastructure.
We faced the most difficult challenges compared to the rest of the country because 80-90% of all flights transporting stranded Indians abroad landed in Delhi. The health secretary had written to all the district magistrates on March 22 saying that 32,000 people had returned to India within a month and they needed to be identified. It was impossible to identify all scattered across Delhi, Kejriwal said.
Bidhuri said CM MP Manish Sisodia had created panic by saying Delhi would see 5.5 lakh cases by the end of July and it was Union Interior Minister Amit Shah who had arranged for 20,000 new beds and provided ventilators, oxygen cylinders, oximeters. , PPE equipment, enhanced testing and cover the cost of treatment in hospitals.
Kejriwal said, I want to thank the Center for helping us whenever we need them.
Meanwhile, the capital on Monday recorded 3,229 new cases of Covid-19, bringing the figure to over 2.21 lakhs, while the death toll rose to 4,770. Twenty-six fatalities were recorded in the last 24 hours, the latest Delhi governments health bulletin stated.
