Covid Surge: Weekend Curfew Announced In Delhi

In the wake of rising coronavirus cases, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) on Tuesday decided to impose a weekend curfew in the national capital.

The weekend curfew will be in force from Friday 10 pm to Monday 5 AM. Reports have claimed that all employees of government offices will shift to “Work From Home” mode — barring those associated with the Essential Services category.

“DDMA has decided to impose a curfew in Delhi on Saturdays and Sundays to curb COVID surge. All govt officials except for those engaged in essential services will work from home. 50% workforce of private offices will work from home”, Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said while addressing a press conference after the meeting.

To avoid crowding outside metro stations and at bus stands, metro trains and DTC buses will again run at full seating capacity, however, it would be mandatory for commuters to wear masks.

“Cases of Omicron variant have been rapidly rising. Delhi has reported around 11,000 positive cases in the past 8-10 days, of which around 350 patients are in hospital, only 124 patients need oxygen and 7 are on a ventilator”, Sisodia informed.
