Why Night Curfew in Delhi from Tomorrow , Omicron Spike , Is Yellow alert issued | Trendsfirst


New Delhi: A night curfew will be implemented in Delhi from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. tomorrow, the city government announced today, as the national capital reported 290 new instances of Covid in the last 24 hours, up 16 percent from yesterday. The case positive rate has risen to 0.5 percent, a crucial threshold, and if it stays there for two days, the "yellow alert" would be issued.

Watch : 

The yellow alert will trigger a slew of further restrictions under the Delhi government's four-stage Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP). In preparation of the third wave of Covid, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority adopted the GRAP in July, with the goal of imposing and easing restrictions based on the situation.

If the alert is sounded, most activities that were resumed in phases as the second wave faded will come to a halt. Shops and malls providing non-essential goods and services will be restricted in their operating hours. The odd-even rule will allow them to be open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.

Restaurants in the city will be permitted to operate at 50% capacity from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. under the yellow alert, while bars will be allowed to operate at 50% capacity from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Cinemas and multiplexes that were previously available to the public will be closed. Banquet halls and auditoriums would also be affected. Hotels, on the other hand, will be permitted to remain open.

Spas, gyms, yoga studios, and amusement parks will be closed. Swimming pools, sports complexes, and stadiums will all be shuttered. However, there will be no limits on national or international sporting events being held in these locations. Parks will remain available to the public.

Salons and beauty parlors will be allowed to function in the city despite the yellow alert.

The Delhi Metro will have a 50% seating capacity and no passengers would be permitted to stand. Interstate buses will have a 50% capacity, while automobiles, e-rickshaws, taxis, and cycle rickshaws will be limited to two passengers.

Only 20 individuals will be allowed at weddings and funerals, and social, political, religious, festival and entertainment-related activities will be prohibited. Religious sites will stay open, but devotee access will be limited.

Schools, colleges, educational institutions, and coaching institutes would all be closed as a result of the yellow warning. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., private workplaces will be authorized to operate at 50% capacity.

So far, Delhi has reported 14,43,352 coronavirus infections, including 25,105 deaths. There are currently 1,103 active cases, with 583 patients in home isolation.

The daily caseload in Delhi increased by 38% on Saturday. The national capital has seen a progressive increase in daily numbers as a result of the threat of the Omicron strain, which has sparked global concern.
