New Delhi: Delhi CM Kejriwal extended the lockdown for a week in New Delhi. The lockdown in the capital was started on 19th April and has now been extended to last till 5 AM, 31st of May. If the number of Covid-19 cases substantially reduces in this period, the government plans to begin a phased unlocking from 1st June. 

The decision of extending the Delhi lockdown by one more week has been taken after considering several opinions suggested by the officials. Mr Kejriwal said “If we unlock the capital right now, our one month’s hard work and perseverance might go to waste. Hence, we have decided to extend the lockdown for one more week to improve the current situations, especially in several sections of the society where Covid-19 cases are at peak.”

The lockdown in the capital has proved helpful in improving the situations and overcoming the difficulties like shortage of oxygen, beds, medicines in hospitals. The Delhi Government commenced the lockdown on the 19th of April and since then a reduced number of active cases has been witnessed. 

To combat the third wave of Coronavirus, the top priority of the government is to vaccinate people. Kejriwal said, “We will begin a vaccination program and for that, we’re trying to avail an adequate supply of vaccines directly from the companies to protect our citizens. We are constantly in touch with the centre to make sure that the Capital receives vaccines at the earliest.”

Apart from New Delhi, Rajasthan Government has also taken precautionary action to extend the state’s lockdown until the 8th of June. CM of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot, announced yesterday about extending the lockdown to keep a check on the virus surge. Other states like Haryana, Puducherry have also extended the timeline of lockdown to break the chain of the virus.
