School not opening for now in Delhi announces CM Arvind Kejriwal.



Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Saturday that schools in the national capital, which were shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic, won't be opening up for now.


This message from the chief minister comes amid a hike in cases of Covid-19 in Delhi, where more than 348,000 people have been affected by it and 6,189 have perished so far.


Kejriwal, earlier in the day, has pitched for free availability of the Covid-19 vaccine for all Indian citizens, reasoning that everyone in the country is being disturbed by the Covid-19 disease.


“The whole country should get a free Covid-19 vaccine. It is the right of the entire country. All the people are troubled by the Covid-19, so the vaccine should be free for the country,” Kejriwal said soon after inaugurating two flyovers in northeast Delhi.


After witnessing a rise in the number of ongoing cases and fresh cases, the national capital is anticipating a spike in Covid-19 cases during the winter and ongoing festive season. Recording a surge in Covid-19 cases after 34 days, Delhi on Friday recorded 4,086 new infections and 26 deaths, taking the total number of confirmed infections in the city to 348,404. The toll from the Covid-19 rose to 6,189.


The political slugfest over the Covid-19 vaccine distribution has become more noticeable as Indian has been fighting against the viral contagion, which has wreaked disorder on the Indian economy, infected more than 7.8 million, and claimed 1,17,956 lives nationwide, for almost nine months till now.
