Kejriwal finally addressed a press conference on Sunday morning, 9th January, one where he talked about how he had tested negative for Coronavirus and was now fit. However, he went onto claim he had completed 7-8 days of self isolation, a timeframe people on Twitter were quick to point out didn’t add up owing to him revealing he had tested positive only on 9th January.
Delhi meanwhile is engulfed in a fresh outbreak of COVID cases as the Omicron variant of the disease takes over the capital. The city has been persistently fraught with positive cases since the disease first made a foray two years back with the capital being one of the worst affected regions in India despite being laden to the brim with the best medical resources.
A RTI had gone onto reveal that the incumbent AAP government had built no new hospital in the capital till 2019 despite being at the helm in the capital since years. Further RTIs also showed that only a scanty amount had been utilised in fighting COVID from the budget released by the central government to it.
