Delhi government will ease the process of lockdown which has begun from today. It started with the recommencement of construction activities and the reopening of factories for a week.
The unlock process began after over six weeks of lockdown imposed in view of the second wave of COVID-19. Delhi, which was worst hit in coronavirus, has somehow gained control over the second wave with the positivity rate coming down to 1.5 per cent.
But CM Kejriwal had also stated that if cases start rising again, the unlock process will have to be stopped. The unlock process began with view of that it should not be people escape coronavirus but die of hunger. The CM also appealed to the people to not step out unless it is absolutely necessary.
