Covid cases fall in Delhi: Restaurants, malls, salons open; schools remain shut
There was a flurry of activities across Delhi on Monday as the Government lifted restrictions on most business with the incidence of covid showing remarkable decline in the past fortnight. The order issued by the DDMA, however, said schools, colleges and other educational institutions will remain shut.

NEW DELHI, June 14: Restaurants, malls and salons opened in the national Capital on Monday in a partial lifting of the lockdown of the past nearly two months as the covid pandemic continued to register a steep fall in the past fortnight.

The order issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority said schools, colleges, coaching institutes and other educational institutions, cinema halls, multiplexes, theatres, gyms, spas, yoga institutes, swimming pools, auditoriums, banquet halls, amusement and water parks, public parks and gardens will continue to remain shut. So also the ban on assembly of people like in events and functions will continue.

The order, however, claimed that almost all economic activities were being allowed to resume from 5 am on June 14.

The malls and other markets opened from 10 am till 8 pm, strictly following the covid protocol. Private offices will function with 50% staff. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, making the announcement on Sunday, said the restrictions were being scaled down in a phased manner but the progress will be reviewed on June 21 for further continuation of the relaxations.

Kejriwal said the weekly markets will function from open grounds and not on the roadside. The odd-even system for opening of shops in the markets which was in force has been abandoned, he said. Standalone and colony shops will have no timing restrictions. Weddings could be organised at homes and the number of participants at funerals limited to 20 people. Inter-State and intra-State movement of people will not have any restrictions. But cabs and autos can take only up to two passengers per ride.

Buses and Metro were allowed to run with a 50% seating capacity since last Monday, in an earlier dose of partial lifting of curbs. Factories and constructions were also allowed.

The lockdown was imposed in Delhi on April 19 as the second wave of covid swept across the country in just about a month compared to seven months that the pandemic took to reach the peak in its first wave last year. The cases of infection in Delhi had reached a peak on April 23 with a daily record of 25,294. The positivity rate has come down to 0.35% and the new cases 255. The deaths were 23, on Sunday, taking the total so far to 24,823.

The daily cases are falling fast elsewhere in the country too but the number of deaths is not registering a proportionate decline. There were only 70,421 new cases in the country on Sunday but the deaths were 3,921, which retains India at the worst position in the world.

Meanwhile, the mucormycosis (black fungus infection) that has spread almost all over the country as a secondary infection in covid-recovered patients during the second wave has claimed 644 lives in Maharashtra so far, most of the deaths occurring in Pune, Nagpur, Nashik and Solapur. The State has recorded a total of 7,395 cases.

The total number of deaths in the country due to covid reached 3,74,305 on Sunday and the tally of cases of infection was 2,95,10,410. The total tests conducted so far were 37,96,24,626, while on Sunday 14,92,152 tests were done, according to the ICMR.. A total of 25,48,49,301 doses of vaccines have been administered so far in the country.
