Hospitals run by the Delhi government and some private hospitals will be reserved only for residents of the national capital, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday, amid a huge controversy over availability of beds.

The note by the medical body read, "Delhi Medical Association strongly condemns the way Delhi CM (Arvind Kejriwal) is warning the doctors and threatening the hospitals about COVID-19 patients admissions and tests".

It also condemned the FIR filed against Sir Ganga Ram Hospital saying that this was 'demoralizing for the whole Medical fraternity.' The statement said, "Doctors of Delhi are already overworked and overstressed in this hour of pandemic crisis and the state government is unnecessarily putting pressure on healthcare systems".

The statement from the Congress comes as the Delhi government has chose to open restaurants and shopping malls, as well as its state borders from June 8.

The sealed borders restricted the interstate movement of non-Delhi residents, only permitting essential services to come through. "I am warning those who think they will be able to do black-marketing of beds using the influence of their protectors from other parties, you will not be spared", the chief minister said at a press briefing on the Coronavirus situation in the national capital.

COVID-19 tally in the city has reached beyond the 26,000-mark, and the number of deaths due to the disease jumped to 708. Hospitals are built to get treatment, not to earn money", Kejriwal had said, adding, "Owners of many private hospitals are not giving space to corona patients in their hospitals because of their high reach. We felt that the hospitals may have to handle additional burden, what with the borders opening. The committee added that if the government opens up hospitals for non-residents, all beds will be occupied within three days.

"Private hospitals play an important role in the development of the health infrastructure of Delhi. Therefore we have decided that some private hospitals in the city will be reserved only for citizens". However, all central hospitals in the city and private facilities that perform specialised surgeries will continue to cater to patients from all parts of the country.
