Omicron in Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said there is no need to panic in the face of growing corona threats. But keep wearing the mask. Although there is a lot of crowd in the market at this time, people do not wear masks. CM Kejriwal said that this time we are 10 times ready to deal with Corona and a graded response action plan will be implemented in Delhi. No worries about Omicron.
CM Kejriwal said that Delhi has had a positivity rate of 0.5 per cent in the last few days and we are implementing the Graded Response Action Plan i.e. Yellow Alert Level-1. Detailed restraining orders will be issued and will be enforced soon. He said the incidence of covid was mild, but the use of oxygen or ventilators did not increase.
A ‘yellow’ warning is issued if the covid infection rate exceeds 0.5 percent for two consecutive days. These include the imposition of night curfews, closure of schools and colleges, opening of non-essential commodity shops on a regular basis and halving the seating capacity of passengers on metro trains and public transport buses. In the wake of the growing case of Covid-19, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) has imposed a night curfew that will last from 11pm to 5am until further notice.
