At least 13 people have tested positive for Covid-19 at Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal’s office in the national capital, Baijal’s office stated on Tuesday.

According to reports, the first case came from the extended branch of the Lieutenant Governor’s office following which 13 people were found positive for coronavirus.

This comes just a day after a NITI Aayog official in Delhi tested positive for Covid-19. The third floor of the NITI Aayog office in Delhi was sealed for sanitisation work on Monday.

Earlier this week, at least two officials working with the External Affairs Ministry tested positive for coronavirus.

One person who tested positive worked as a consultant in the ministry’s Central Europe (CE) division in New Delhi, while the other worked as a legal officer in the law division, news agency Reuters reported.

This comes when the Covid-19 tally in the national capital has crossed the 20,000-mark. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in an online address on Tuesday, said that administration has created an app that will help Covid-19 patients track the availability of hospital beds.

“If a hospital refuses to provide you bed even when our app shows beds are available in that hospital, then you can call on 1031. Our Special Secretary will take an action immediately and contact the hospital authorities to provide you bed on the spot,” Kejriwal said.

Kejriwal said that the administration is prepared and has made sufficient arrangements to tackle the rise in severe Covid-19 cases in the national capital.
