New Delhi: Kejriwal government has decided to impose night curfew in Delhi to overcome the fourth wave of corona virus. Curfew has been imposed in the capital from 10 am to 5 am from today till 30 April. During this time, necessary services and emergency movement will be approved, but others will not be able to leave within a fixed time. The government has taken this decision to deal with the rapid increase in corona infection.
The Delhi government, in its order, said a “sudden increase in Covid-19 cases” and a “high positivity rate” required a nighttime curfew. Officials said that during the night curfew, movement of people going for vaccination and essential services would be allowed.
Private doctors, nurses, other medical staff and journalists will be allowed to take to the streets with ID cards. Pregnant women and people will be exempted for treatment. If someone wants to travel, they have to show their ticket, only then they will be allowed to travel through the airport, train and bus stations.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday that Delhi was going through the fourth wave of Corona, but the lockdown was not yet being considered. He said, “As of the current situation, we are not considering imposing a lockdown. We are closely monitoring the situation and such a decision will be taken only after proper public consultation. “
With states such as Maharashtra and Rajasthan increasing Covid cases across the country, the government has decided to impose a night curfew to prevent infection.
Curfew has been announced from 8 pm to 7 am in Maharashtra in the increase in cases. Night curfew in Rajasthan will be from 8 am to 6 am.
Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding the abolition of the age limit for vaccines to control the corona. Kejriwal wrote that the more people who get vaccinated, the less will the spread of corona spread.
The Chief Minister wrote to the PM that vaccination has been going on for three months and it has become clear that the vaccine is safe. In such a situation, now this condition should be removed and schools, community buildings and other places should be allowed to build vaccination centers on a large scale.
For the first time in the country, more than one lakh new cases of Corona were received. Active cases have also crossed 7 lakhs. In view of Corona’s uncontrollable pace, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold discussions with Chief Ministers of all states on 8 April.
