As everyday Covid-19 cases in the national capital endure to drop, the Delhi government has proclaimed further relaxation in the lockdown-like restrictions from Monday. The relaxations have been extended till 5am on June 28.
The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) has alleviated the unending curbs by allowing bars, golf clubs, gardens and public parks to reopen from Monday. The DDMA has also allowed outdoor yoga activities. Bars will be able to open from noon to 10pm with 50% seating capacity, the Delhi government said in a fresh order. Restaurants can stay open from 8am to 10pm, instead of the current 10am to 8pm.
The fresh phase of easing comes amid cautions by doctors and public health experts about the risks of a rapid unlock. Delhi on Sunday chronicled 124 new Covid-19 cases and seven deaths in the last 24 hours. This is the lowest daily Covid-19 count the city has seen after February 16 when Delhi had recorded 97 Covid-19 cases.
Meanwhile, India logged less than 60,000 fresh COVID-19 infections after 81 days, taking the country’s tally of coronavirus cases to 2,98,81,965. The active cases further reduced to 7,29,243, according to Union Health Ministry data released on Sunday morning.
Well, do you think the lockdown relaxation in Delhi is a smart choice? Do you foresee another wave of this pandemic hitting us again?
