New Delhi/IBNS: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said local transmission of COVID-19 is under control in the national capital.

"Corona's local transmission is under control in Delhi. As per the reports we are not in the stage of community transmission," Kejriwal said.

He said no community transmission case has been recorded in the national capital.

"We have analysed 97 cases including 24 cases from Markaz, 41 foreign travellers, 22 close relatives of foreign travellers. The situation is under control, there is no community transmission," he said.

He made the reamrks at a time when twenty-four people have tested positive for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) while seven died in the national capital of India following a mass gathering of Tableeghi Jamaat preachers at a religious event which was held at Alami Markaz Banglewali Masjid in Nizamuddin here.

Over 300 people, who were present at the event, were earlier admitted to different hospitals across the city.

The gathering, which took place in mid-March, hosted visitors from Malaysia, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Kyrgyzstan.

Kejriwal urged religious leaders not to host such events at a time when the nation is witnessing COVID-19 outbreak.

"With folded hands I request to all religious leaders and people, do not organize any gathering and cooperate with the Government," he said.
