*September 2021 has recorded the least number of dengue cases in comparison to the last 6 years: Satyendar Jain

*Kejriwal Government’s ‘10 Hafte 10 Din 10 Minute’ campaign is effectively aiding in the prevention of dengue: Satyendar Jain

*Delhi Government welcomes Delhi High Court's verdict on Oxygen Audit Committee; truth has prevailed: Satyendar Jain

New Delhi : 22nd September 2021-Health Minister Shri Satyendar Jain on Wednesday informed that September 2021 has recorded the least number of dengue cases as compared to the last 6 years. He added that Delhi Government's ‘10 Hafte 10 Din 10 Minute’ campaign is effectively aiding in the prevention of dengue in the Capital. He further said that the Delhi Government welcomes the High Court’s verdict on the Oxygen Audit Committee. Adding that this has paved the way for the Delhi Government to bring justice to the victims who have lost their lives due to lack of oxygen during the second wave of Covid-19.

Shri Satyendar Jain said, "The number of dengue cases recorded up till now is the lowest in comparison to the previous years. A total of 87 cases were reported till this Sunday in 2021, whereas a total of 188, 190, 374, 1103, 1362 and 6775 cases of dengue were reported in September 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015 respectively."

He further said, "The Delhi Government has been taking preventive measures to keep the spread of dengue under control, especially the launch of the "10 Hafte 10 Din 10 Minute" campaign to spread awareness about dengue has been successful for the past 2 years. The people of Delhi have been cooperative to not leave stagnant water around residential areas unattended for the mosquitoes to breed."

He said, “the life cycle of a dengue mosquito is about 10 days. People once a week for 10 minutes should check for any stagnant water around. All that has to be done is empty the vessels, flower vases, and containers containing stagnant water so that they don't become breeding grounds for the dengue-causing mosquitoes."

On the verdict of the Delhi High Court regarding the Delhi Government's Oxygen Audit Committee, Satyendar Jain said, "The Central Government has given factually incorrect statements regarding the number of deaths due to the lack of oxygen. According to the Central Government, there were no deaths because of the lack of availability of oxygen in the whole country. They even gave this statement in Parliament."

He further said, "The Delhi Government had formed an Oxygen Audit Committee to find out the deaths due to oxygen and to compensate the victims, which was suspended by the Central Government through the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi. The High Court has also said that this committee of the Delhi Government is absolutely justified and there is nothing wrong with it. Anyone can apply to this Oxygen Audit Committee of the Delhi Government. The government will scrutinize these applications and give compensation of up to 5 lakhs to the victims. The media was also giving information about the deaths due to lack of oxygen by reporting live. But the central government wanted to hide these deaths. This act by the Central Government during a tragedy is wrong.”

After this decision of the Delhi High Court, now the Delhi Government will be able to form an Oxygen Audit Committee to investigate the deaths due to lack of oxygen and give compensation to the victims. This will provide justice to the people who lost their lives in the Oxygen crisis during the 2nd wave of Covid-19.


*Delhi's Health Minister Satyendar Jain attended Kshamavani Parv with Speaker of Delhi Legislative Assembly, Ram Niwas Goel*

*We should not wait for a year to ask for forgiveness, this feeling should be in our behaviour: Satyendar Jain*

*To control anger, we first need to understand that we are human beings: Satyendar Jain*
New Delhi : 22nd September 2021-Delhi's Health Minister Satyendar Jain attended the Kshamavani Parv with the Speaker of Delhi Legislative Assembly, Ram Niwas Goel on Wednesday. Kshamavani Parv is also known as the Day of Forgiveness. This is a day for forgiving and seeking forgiveness of all and is observed by the followers of Jainism. At the end of the Paryushan and Daslakshan festivals, Kshamavani is observed. On this day, people ask for forgiveness with folded hands and apologise for hurting anyone knowingly or unknowingly. The Health Minister said that we should not wait for a year to apologise to someone, this feeling should be ingrained in our behaviour. He further said that to control anger, it is first necessary to understand that we are human beings. In the end, he apologised to everyone for hurting them knowingly or unknowingly during the year. Delhi Legislative Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel said that with forgiveness, broken hearts are reunited and the train of life starts running on the track. At this festival, everyone is asked for forgiveness of mistakes for their spiritual purity. Apologising here does not mean that you are wrong and the other person is right.

In the event, Satyendar Jain said, "One should not wait for a particular day in a year to apologise for their wrongdoings. Whenever a mistake is made, one should apologise instantly. We should not only apologise for the mistakes that we feel we have made but for the mistakes that others feel. If we hurt others with our words and doings, it is our job to apologize to them. After committing a mistake, one should not wait for a day to apologize, instead, we should apologize in that instant. This should be a part of our behaviour."

Shri Satyendar Jain further said, "One feels angry only at someone weaker than oneself. Whereas one never shows or feels anger towards someone stronger than oneself. It may also happen that the one whom we assume to be weaker might not actually be weak. It is a game of perception. We need to understand the difference between small and big. First, we should understand that we all are human beings. If we understand this, then our anger will automatically cease to exist. Before looking into the depth of anything, we should see the larger picture of it which is evident to us."

However, the requirement of a Surviving Member Certificate(SMC) will remain in force for the grant of ex-gratia for other applicants. In cases where the deceased was a single parent, the surviving children are entitled to the ex-gratia equally distributed among all children but for that, the name of the applicant should be reflected in SMC. Similarly if the deceased is unmarried or is a minor son/daughter, the father or mother of the deceased will get relief under the scheme subject to their name appearing in SMC.

Under the scheme, the Kejriwal Government provides cash transfers to families who had lost their bread earners due to COVID-19.
