Arvind Kejriwal Launches Centre For Realtime COVID-Related Data
The Delhi government's preparations will not slow down as there is a possibility of a third coronavirus wave, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Saturday, launching an integrated command and control centre (ICCC) to capture realtime pandemic management data.
The COVID care centres that were closed down after decline in the first wave will be reopened and strengthened further, Mr Kejriwal told reporters.
The new centre will help in decision-making by furnishing realtime data like vaccination details, availability of oxygen, beds, medicines and other requirements in both private and government hospitals, he said.
"Decisions taken by the government in thin air are never successful. However, if based on data, the decisions will be effective and more meaningful," Mr Kejriwal said.
The realtime data will be made available to the officers through an app, while the government will also consider to what extent access can also be provided to public, he said.
