Covid restrictions in Delhi will be lifted soon, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said today. Some traders had met him last week and requested that weekend curfews and odd-even opening of shops be lifted, he said. The capital will record a 10 per cent infection rate today, he added. The maximum was 30 per cent, on January 15.
“When Covid cases rise, we are forced to impose restrictions and people face difficulties. We only bring in restrictions that are needed,” Mr Kejriwal said.
The Chief Minister pointed out that he had sent proposals to lift restrictions to the Lieutenant Governor but he did not accept it. “We will together lift the restrictions soon,” he added.
In Delhi, 100% of people have got the first dose and 82% of people have received both doses of the Covid vaccine, Mr Kejriwal said.
