New Delhi: Along with the country, the cases of corona are also increasing in the national capital Delhi. Although the state government is trying hard to reduce the cases, but the uncontrollable pace of Corona continues. In such a situation, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Tuesday that the government will not impose a lockdown in the national capital and urged people not to worry.
Talking to reporters, the Chief Minister of Delhi said that around 22,000 new COVID-19 cases are likely to be reported in the city today.
He said, “Don’t worry, we will not impose lockdown. In the DDMA meeting we requested the central government officials to cover the entire NCR for restrictions, they assured us on the same.”
Kejriwal took stock of the Covid preparedness at LNJP Hospital this afternoon. He said, “I visited the hospital to take stock of the preparedness related to COVID. It is the best hospital in the country, having treated more than 22,000 patients so far.”
The Delhi government earlier today ordered the closure of all private offices in the city, except those that fall in the exempted category.
The practice of work from home by private offices will be followed in the order issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) on Tuesday.
The government on Monday banned the dine-in facility at restaurants in the city and closed bars and allowed only home delivery and takeaway of food items.
