Mr Kejriwal said, "I went to inspect the LNJP Hospital yesterday, talked to the doctors and nurses there. I would like to thank all the doctors, nurses and paramedic staff on behalf of all the Delhiites. They have been working for the past year. Even now, they are working with great persistence. I had a conversation with them yesterday. We are focusing on hospital management. In the past few days, I received messages from people who stated that 'I went to this hospital, there were no beds available. We went to the other, but with no success'.'
'The app that we launched during the first wave in June, is still working. If you tested positive and require access to the hospital, the app shows which hospital does have availability of beds. All of you must download the app and check where the beds are available. Take the patient to that particular hospital straight away instead of going from one hospital to the other," the Delhi Chief Minister said.
