New Delhi:

Arvind Kejriwal has gone into self-quarantine and may take a coronavirus test after complaints of mild fever, Press Trust of India said today. The Delhi Chief Minister has reportedly cancelled all his meetings.

Mr Kejriwal, 51, has been unwell since Sunday afternoon, said PTI. According to reports, he hasn't met anyone since then.

He has isolated himself at his official home in Delhi, news agency ANI said.

On Sunday, the Chief Minister addressed a very brief digital press conference at noon to announce a new policy of reserving hospital beds for residents of Delhi. He was seen wearing a mask.

Amid complaints of coronavirus patients or suspected patients being denied hospital beds, Mr Kejriwal declared that hospitals run by the Delhi government and some private hospitals would be reserved only for residents of the capital.

He also said Delhi would reopen its borders, which were sealed in the first place "thinking that our hospitals will be flooded with people from other states".

Delhi has seen a spurt in COVID-19 cases and over 1,000 new cases daily for the past few days. There are over 27,600 cases in the capital.
