New restrictions in Delhi due Covid fear, but buses, metro to run with full capacity

Concerns have increased due to the spurt in the cases of Covid-19 and its new variant Omicron in the national capital Delhi. Amidst the fear of Covid, new restrictions are being implemented in Delhi.

However, public transport buses and metro will run at full capacity. The government has told people that there is no need to panic as buses and metro will run with 100 per cent capacity, but COVID safety norms – such as social distancing and wearing of masks – will have to be strictly followed.

According to the Graded Response Action Plan of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA), a positivity rate of more than 5 percent for two consecutive days is one of the criteria for declaring a red alert. Red alert means total curfew and most economic activities will have to be stopped.
