The city’s crisis management administration announced on Friday that the city’s capital Delhi will stay under curfew over the weekend and overnight to help prevent the spread of the Omicron variant of coronavirus, despite appeals from businesses to relax the restrictions.

The news: Private offices, on the other hand, will be permitted to be partially staffed, but workers are encouraged to work from home as much as possible, according to the authorities.

What they’re saying: “It is further clarified that the ‘Night Curfew’ from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. every day, as well as the ‘Weekend Curfew’…shall likewise continue in effect…until further order,” the authority stated.

  • People who need to travel for medical reasons, such as vaccines, going to and from railway terminals and airports, or delivering food, are exempt.
  • New Delhi’s deputy chief minister said earlier on Friday that the local government had advocated loosening restrictions since cases in the sprawling capital of some 20 million people were “declining dramatically”.
  • This week, disgruntled Delhi retailers took to the streets to demand that limits be eliminated.
  • In a webcast, Manish Sisodia, Delhi’s deputy chief minister, stated, “Now that the cases are coming down, it would be unfair to stop people from travelling out to earn a living.”

What’s going on: The most recent coronavirus infections have been moderate, according to local officials, and most persons have recovered at home.

  • According to government data, the number of new cases in Delhi has dropped by more than half from a high of 28,867 on Jan. 13, and more than 80 per cent of COVID beds in the city’s hospitals are vacant.
  • For the past two years, Delhi has been one of the epicentres of India’s coronavirus epidemic, with numerous waves of infection resulting in lockdowns and curfews.
  • As illnesses caused by highly transmissible Omicron increased, the city issued a curfew on Jan. 4 and ordered schools and eateries to close.

Since peaking earlier this month, the financial capital of Mumbai has seen a significant drop in infection rates.
