Kejriwal said that pollution is one of the main causes for the rise in Covid cases.
‘COVID-19 cases have been increasing for the last few days.
I am also concerned about it.
We have been taking all appropriate measures to control it.
We are considering taking more steps next week.
I think the situation should come under control in 7 to 10 days and the cases should start decreasing,’ Arvind Kejriwal said during a press conference.
