Delhi Further Relaxes Covid Curbs, Allows Spas, Cinema Halls to Open; Metro to Run at 100% Capacity from Monday

The Delhi government on Saturday announced further relaxation in coronavirus-induced restrictions and allowed reopening of spas, theatres and cinema halls with 50 per cent occupancy in view of decline in Covid-19 cases in the national capital. Delhi metro has also been given permission to operate with 100 per cent seating capacity. The new guidelines will be effective from 5 am, July 26.

The city had witnessed an unprecedented surge of cases and deaths during the second wave of coronavirus in April and May. But now as the situation seems to have been improving over the past few weeks, the Arvind Kejriwal-led government is reopening Delhi in a phased manner.

As per an order issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) issued on Saturday, “The status of Covid-19 in NCT of Delhi has again been reviewed and it has been observed that the number of Covid-19 patients and positivity has decline considerably and the overall situation has improved, but due caution and care has to be maintained for consolidating the whole process of Covid-19 management.”

Delhi on Saturday recorded 66 new Covid-19 cases and zero death due to the infection. According to the health bulletin, 52 patients have recovered in the last 24 hours. There are total 587 active cases in the city.
