With Covid-19 numbers in Delhi dropping to a three-month low, all market activities have been allowed from Monday, but with certain restrictions as part of the phased unlock plan of the Delhi government.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday announced that all activities will be allowed in the national capital after 5 am on Monday except for some activities that will be prohibited and some activities that will be done in a restricted manner.
The Delhi government imposed a lockdown in the national capital from April 19 at the peak of the second wave of Covid-19. The lockdown has been extended a few times since then. After a continuous decline in daily coronavirus cases for several days, Kejriwal had announced the unlocking process from May 31 in a phased manner.
Delhi on Sunday recorded 255 fresh Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours. The national capital's Covid-19 caseload has increased to 14,31,139 so far, according to the daily health bulletin. The death toll increased to 24,823 after 23 virus-related fatalities were reported in the last 24 hours.
