Delhi sees further relaxations in curbs: What’s allowed, what’s not

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced further relaxations in curbs as the national capital continued to see a steady decline in COVID-19 cases.

"If the cases of infection keep decreasing in the current manner, then our life will gradually come back on track," Kejriwal said on Sunday.

The CM, however, cautioned that these relaxations are conditional and if the positive cases rise during the trial period, the government will withdraw permissions.

A complete lockdown was announced in the national capital on April 19 and the city began to unlock in phases from June 7.

“After 5 am tomorrow (June 14), all activities will be allowed except some that will be prohibited and some that will be done in a restricted manner,” said Kejriwal.
