Srinagar: The Delhi government on Sunday announced that it will be implementing all lockdown relaxations proposed by the Ministry of Home Affairs from Monday.
“Time has come to re-open Delhi. We will have to be ready to live with coronavirus,” said Arvind Kejriwal in a press briefing. “The Delhi government will implement all lockdown relaxations prescribed by the home ministry.”
Kejriwal added that the Delhi government will implement the centre’s latest guidelines on lockdown relaxation and allow government and private offices to open from Monday but the suspension of travel by flight, metro and bus will continue.
The third phase of the countrywide lockdown begins Monday with “considerable relaxations”, but curbs will continue in containment areas so that the gains achieved so far in the fight against Covid-19 are not “squandered away”.
The country has been divided into three zones — Red, Orange and Green – based on coronavirus risk-profiling. The extended lockdown is slated to last till 17 May.
