New Delhi [India], May 15 (ANI): As part of efforts to curb COVID-19 infections in the national capital, the Delhi government on Saturday set up an Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC), a facility in which all types of COVID-related data will be monitored on a single dashboard.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said in a tweet that the move will help in informed decision-making.

"Delhi government has started an Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC). Data related to hospitals, oxygen, vaccination and other aspects of COVID management are collected, collated, and analysed on a real-time basis. It will help us in making informed decision making," he said in a tweet.

Earlier in the day, Kejriwal visited the Integrated Command and Control Centre and said that such steps by the government were part of preparation against the third wave of COVID-19.

According to the Delhi government's health bulletin issued on Saturday, 6,430 new COVID-19 cases were recorded in the national capital in the last 24 hours. This is the second consecutive day in over a month that the number of new cases is below the 10,000-mark.

The number of fatalities, however, were 337 deaths in the last 24 hours and the toll has now reached 21,244. The cumulative fatality rate is at 1.53 per cent.
