The news comes as the Indian capital struggles to cope with a spike in infections – it has confirmed more than 27,000 cases and 761 deaths so far.
And Kejriwal said on Sunday that hospital beds in the city would be reserved for residents amid reports that patients are struggling to get admitted for treatment.
Meanwhile, India has taken steps to further relax its stringent lockdown – shopping centres, restaurants, temples and offices are open from Monday.
