After seeing the spike in covid cases in Delhi, Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) has made wearing masks in public spaces of the capital city mandatory once again, anybody violating the guideline would have to pay the penalty of Rs500.
In the past week a few schools were affected by covid-19, resulting in suspension of classes and increase in safety measures. After a meeting, DDMA officials decided that schools cannot shut down anymore because the education of students has already backtracked a lot in the last two years. Therefore, a separate Standard Operating Procedure will be used which will be consulted with the experts.
On Tuesday, according to the Delhi government’s health bulletin, a total of 632 fresh cases were reported. Amidst this rise of covid cases, CM Arvind Kejrival is keeping a close eye and has directed the officials to turn to aggressive testing and emphasizing on vaccination for age groups that are eligible.
