Delhi government is going to impose night curfew amidst increasing cases of corona. There will be a ban in Delhi from Monday between 11 pm to 5 am. The Delhi government has taken this decision as a precaution even before going into yellow alert.
If the infection rate of Corona remains 0.50 percent on Monday for the second consecutive day, then with the metro running at 50 percent capacity, the odd-even formula will be applicable in the markets. While many other restrictions will also apply.
The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) has approved the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) for a possible third wave of covid. Under GRAP, different types of restrictions have been fixed based on the infection rate of corona, active patients and number of patients admitted in hospitals. The system will be activated automatically when the specified number of cases increases.
Its first phase will be implemented when the infection rate comes to 0.50 percent for two consecutive days. The infection rate crossed the .50 percent mark for the first time on Sunday amid increasing cases of corona. In view of this, the government has decided to impose night curfew from Monday as a precautionary measure.
According to officials, if the infection rate remains above .50 percent on Monday, then the yellow alert will be implemented. With this the metro will run at 50 percent capacity.
At the same time, cinema halls, multiplexes, theatres, conference rooms, banquet halls, spa and wellness clinics, yoga institutes and gyms will be closed along with educational institutions. At the same time, night curfew will be applicable from 10 pm to 5 am. Shops and shopping malls will run on the odd-even formula during the day.
