The revival of economic activity in Delhi should not lead to a lapse in Covid-19 proper behaviour, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday as marketplaces reopened and the metro began service.
Markets will open in stages, with the government imposing an odd-even rule that allows 50% of stores to serve clients on any given day, while the metro will run at 50% capacity.
He emphasised the importance of getting the economy back on track while also preventing the spread of the virus. Thousands of migrant labourers returned to their communities as a result of the lockdown, which began on April 19.
The Delhi government stated on Saturday that it will partially lift the limitations , citing a drop in the number of illnesses and deaths, as well as a positive rate of less than 1%.
Passengers were asked to travel “only if absolutely necessary,” according to the public transportation company. Despite the fact that each eight-coach metro train can transport up to 2400 passengers, due to current limits, only roughly 250 people will be permitted to board each train.
