All shud continue following Covid Appropriate Behaviour. Govt will keep strict watch

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal appealed to follow Covid-appropriate behaviour with the curbs being lifted. The government will keep a strict watch, the chief minister said.

After the second wave of the pandemic last year, the Delhi government brought back night curfew and several other restrictions in the Capital, starting from this year, with the alarming outbreak of Omicron, the variant first detected in South Africa in November 2021.

As the Omicron curb started plateauing after a small curve in the Capital, the DDMA started easing the restrictions one at a time. In the last meeting of the DDMA, it was decided that people driving solo in cars will no longer need to mandatorily wear masks.
