Delhi is the second state after Maharashtra to impose ‘curfew’ in a bid to curb Chinese coronavirus that has gone unhinged in past few weeks. Now the Centre has stepped in to reactivate the DRDO established COVID-19 facilities in national capital to help cope with the overburdened healthcare system.
Delhi currently has over 50,000 active cases in the state. Curfew passes to be issued to those rendering essential services. Malls, gyms, spas and auditoriums to be closed for the weekend. Cinemas halls to operate at 30% capacity only. People will not be allowed to dine-in restaurants, only home deliveries permitted
