A total of 302 ventilators are available in Delhi, of which 210 are vacant, he added. 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday launched a mobile app for updates on vacant beds in hospitals for COVID-19 patients.

The chief minister said that all information regarding vacant beds will be updated on the app twice a day, 10 am and 6 pm.

''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,'' the Delhi chief minister said.

A total of 302 ventilators are available in Delhi, of which 210 are vacant, he added. 

''All information related to hospitals and beds, you can call on our helpline 1031. They will send you an SMS with the status of bed availability in Delhi hospitals,'' he noted.

''We are four steps ahead of coronavirus. Cases of coronavirus are increasing in Delhi but we have made all the arrangements for beds, ICUs and ventilators,'' he said.

Kejriwal said that number of cases in Delhi are increasing, but there's no need to worry about medical care for COVID-19 patients as the government has done sufficient arrangements.
