Following a drop in the city’s Covid-19 positive rate, the Delhi government has eased the restrictions even more starting Monday. The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) published new restrictions on Saturday for phase 5 of the Delhi unlock, stating that prohibited and restricted activities will remain until 5 a.m. on July 5.
The DDMA also discussed the situation outside Delhi Metro stations, which is defined by long lines due to a seating capacity cap of 50% in each train coach. The Metro, on the other hand, will be restricted for at least another week.
As daily Covid-19 cases showed a decreased trend last week, Delhi allowed businesses to stay open all week and markets to open with a reduced workforce.
Between April 19 and May 30, Delhi was under lockdown when the city was hit by the second Covid-19 wave. The city began unlocking in stages on May 31, allowing factories in industrial regions to reopen and construction activities to resume. Markets, malls, and Delhi Metro services were allowed to open at 50% capacity on June 7, and the 50% cap was eliminated in the case of markets and malls on June 14. Parks, public gardens, and bars were allowed to reopen as a result.
According to the health bulletin, the national capital recorded 89 new Covid-19 cases on Sunday, staying below 100 instances for the second day in a row, while the daily Covid-19 positivity rate stayed at 0.12%. The death toll in Delhi’s Covid swelled to 24,965 on Sunday after four additional deaths were revealed.
In the most recent guidelines, here’s what’s allowed and what’s not:
- In the national capital, Gymnasiums and Yoga Institutes are now allowed to function at 50% capacity.
- Weddings with 50 guests are now permitted to be held at marriage halls, banquet halls, and hotels.
- Ceremonies with not more than 50 attendees are permitted.
- The 50% seating capacity limit for restaurants and bars will remain in place.
