The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) will also conduct a meeting on Thursday 12.30 pm to discuss the Covid restrictions and the ongoing situation in the city. The meeting will be attended by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and DDMA Chairman and Lieutenant Governor(L-G) Anil Baijal and other experts and officials.

After receiving several requests, the Delhi Government sent a proposal to Baijal to lift the weekend curfew and other restrictions but he approved to open only private offices and rejected the recommendations to remove the weekend curfew and the odd-even arrangement at the markets.

On Tuesday, Kejriwal said, the L-G and the Delhi government are working together and will ease restrictions as soon as possible so that people’s livelihood and economic activities can return to normalcy.

Delhi saw 6,028 positive cases with a positivity rate of 10.55 per cent and 31 Covid fatality Tuesday.
