There will no longer be restrictions on shopping malls and markets. Thus, you no longer have to remain in the bio-bubble if you live in Delhi. You can visit the malls and chill out this weekend with your family or friends, but remember to follow all the safety protocols.

The DDMA has capped the maximum limit in weddings to 200 or 50% of the capacity. Cinema halls and restaurants are now allowed to operate with 50 percent capacity. Educational institutes, for instance, schools and colleges, will remain closed. Government offices can work with fifty percent capacity. But, the night curfew will continue to prevail from 10 pm to 5 am. There will be no odd-even measures for shops anymore.

Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal headed the meeting. Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, attended with other high officials. 

An official said that the decision regarding the opening of educational institutions would be the topic of the next DDMA meeting. Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia earlier said that the Delhi government would propose reopening schools and colleges in the meeting. It needs no mention that mental health and studies have become heavily hampered due to the pandemic. How can the children cope when adults find it challenging to survive the pandemic mentally and physically?

Last week, private offices opened, excluding those in the containment zones. They are operating using 50 percent attendance. 


Current Covid Analysis

Earlier in January 2022, the DDMA had decided to start the weekend curfew to curb the surging case of Covid-19. Because current covid cases in Delhi slipped from 7,498 to 4,291 on Thursday, this takes the total number of active cases in Delhi to 33,175, and hence, the real positivity rate remains 9.56 percent.

The city witnessed 34 deaths in the last 24 hours. A report says that most of the recent deaths of covid were of unvaccinated people. 

Don’t take the Omicron variant lightly. Wear masks, maintain social distance and take the vaccine. The sooner we become aware, the sooner the deadly Covid-19 will leave us.
