Arvind Kejriwal: Lockdown to be lifted gradually in Delhi from May 31: CM Arvind Kejriwal


Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said Delhi has somehow gained control over the second wave of COVID-19 and the city will now start the process of lifting the lockdown gradually.

He, however, said the fight against the virus has not ended. “At a meeting of Delhi Disaster Management Authority on Friday, it was decided that the lockdown be lifted gradually. In the process, we have to take care of the lowest strata first … daily wagers, labourers, migrant workers,” he said.

“Unlock process in Delhi will begin from May 31, to be done in phases,” he said.

It has been decided to open factories and allow construction activities, Kejriwal said.

Every week, based on experts’ and public opinion, the government will continue the unlock process, he said.

“After facing so many problems, we have gained control over the 2nd wave somehow. This doesn’t mean the fight has ended. The situation is under control for now. In the last 24 hours, the positivity rate stood at around 1.5 per cent.”
