Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was part of the meeting called by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss COVID-19 situation in the worst hit states. The Delhi Chief Minister said that cases in the capital are now decreasing after hitting a peak of almost 8,600 cases on November 10.

He also sought the Prime Minister's intervention in curbing pollution in the capital due to stubble burning by farmers in neighbouring states. Kejriwal attributed the spike in cases to rising pollution levels and the rush in markets during the festive season.

To discuss the state's preparedness against the pandemic, CNBC-TV18’s Shereen Bhan spoke to Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain.
