Weekend curfew in Delhi; passes for weddings

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday announced sweeping restrictions, including a weekend curfew and the closure of malls, gyms, spas and auditoriums, in a bid to break the chain of Covid infections in the city.

There will be no in-house dining in restaurants and cinema halls will be allowed to operate with only 30 per cent capacity, the chief minister said at an online press conference a day after the city recorded the biggest single-day jump of 17,282 new Covid cases.

Kejrwal said essential services and weddings would not be affected during the weekend curfew and passes would be provided to those attending weddings.

Restaurants in the national capital would be allowed to do home deliveries, Kejriwal announced, adding that only one weekly market in a zone would be allowed to open per day and steps would be taken to control crowds in those permitted to function.

Covid cases, he said, are rising every day in Delhi and the restrictions were needed to check the spread of the virus.

The government would also ensure strict enforcement of Covid-appropriate behaviour such as wearing masks, Kejriwal said, noting that many people were still not following it.
