An in depth order on limitations to become implemented is going to be released soon,” the main Minister stated following a ending up in top officials.
“We’re 10 occasions more prepared than earlier to handle the increase in Covid cases in Delhi,” he assured, adding that Covid cases were mild and there wasn’t any rise in the intake of oxygen or using ventilators despite the increase in figures.
However, Mr Kejriwal advised caution over recent images showing big crowds at markets within the capital and individuals without masks.
“Such images of crowds and individuals not putting on masks shouldn’t emerge or we will need to shut lower markets which would cause lots of problems,” he cautioned.
