Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal announced a 5T plan to stop the spread of the new coronavirus. The 5T plan includes testing, tracing, treatment, teamwork and tracking.

1.Testing

Aggressive testing is the key to curb the spread of the new coronavirus, says Arvind Kejriwal. The government will conduct one lakh rapid tests in hotspot areas like Dilshad Garden and Nizamuddin.

2.Tracing

After testing, next comes tracing. People are identified who have come in contact with a positive patient and are asked to self-quarantine. The help of Delhi Police is being taken to ensure that self-quarantine is being followed.

3.Treatment

2,950 beds are reserved for coronavirus patients, the chief minister said. LNJP, GB Pant and Rajiv Gandhi hospitals will treat only coronavirus patients. Beds in private hospitals have been identified where only coronavirus patientis will be treated. 12,000 hotel rooms will be taken over. Serious patients and elderly will be kept in hospitals and those with milder symptoms will be kept in hotels and dharamshalas. Delhi will receive PPE kits shortly from the Centre.

4.Teamwork

New coronavirus can only be defeated through teamwork and I am happy that all states along with Centre are working together to stop the spread of the virus, said the Delhi chief minister. We have to learn from other states. Doctors and nurses are key members of the teams. Their protection is paramount.

5.Tracking & Monitoring

The Delhi government will actively track the developments and action taken to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
