Keeping borders sealed, Arvind Kejriwal allows hair salons to re-open in Unlock-1 phase
Arvind Kejriwal at a press meeting on Monday afternoon announced that hair salons can open again in Delhi as the country entered the Unlock 1 phase. “Apart from whatever was allowed till now, barbershops and salons will be opened but spas will remain closed,” said the chief minister.
While allowing salons and barbershops to re-open, the Delhi chief minister had taken a controversial stance when he announced that the national capital’s borders will remain sealed for the next one week on the account of a possible influx of residents from neighbouring states for free treatment that would overwhelm the healthcare services in Delhi.
Kejriwal claimed that if the borders are opened, people from neighbouring states will flock to Delhi as the treatment for coronavirus in the national capital is free and the beds meant for the ailing Delhi residents will be occupied with 2 days.
It must be noted here that other than state government-run hospitals, there are many central government-run hospitals in Delhi like AIIMS, Safdarjung Hospital, and Ram Manohar Lohiya. The treatment at these hospitals is either free or with negligible cost.
