The chief minister said the safety and the health of school children are very important to the AAP government.
"I meet people and get messages from them asking not to open schools. I want to assure them that we care about their children as much as they do. Unless fully convinced, we are not going to open the schools," he said.
Kejriwal said Delhi "gave the model" of home isolation and plasma therapy concept to the country in the fight against the virus.
He said that efforts are being made to bring Delhi's economy back on track.
This year the city government shifted its Independence Day event to the Delhi Secretariat from Chhatrasal Stadium due to the coronavirus pandemic.
