Amid rising Covid 19 cases in Delhi, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday announces a yellow alert or level 1 of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) in the National Capital.

Kejriwal during an online statement asked Delhiites to wear masks in Public places and assures them that his Government is ‘more prepared than before to deal with any Covid surge’

“From last 2-3 days the the positivity rate stayed over 0.5 per cent, but you don’t need to worry as the cases are mostly mild or asymptomatic which doesn’t need hospitalization,’ he added.

“A complete order with details on restrictions and exemptions will follow,” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader also said in the virtual briefing as he urged people to follow Covid-19 protocols.

The ‘yellow’ alert involves restrictions like night curfew, closure of schools and colleges, odd-even rule for non-essential shops and 50% seating capacity in restaurants, bars and Public transport.

“The curbs explained under GRAP’s ‘Yellow Alert’ will be imposed by the local authorities only after the DDMA issues an order specifying all the curbs and the date from which they will be imposed,” the chief minister. “Only after the DDMA order is out, the authorities will enforce the restrictions,” he added.
