Covid-19 Closure in Delhi: A decision to simplify the closure was taken during a meeting of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA).

Other restrictions, however, will remain in place until June 7, Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced on Friday.

Since most of them work in the construction industry or factories, we will be opening these from Monday. But we must remember that the war against Covid-19 is not over yet. We have to make sure things don’t go wrong again. To ensure this, rest must be presented in stages, ”said Kejriwal.
