The lockdown has been diced to get extended in Delhi by the Delhi administration by another week. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced it on Sunday. The cases of Covid-19 had continued to show a downward trend. The process of unlocking will be going to begin in Delhi on May 31.

In the last 24 Hours, Delhi had reported 1,600 new Covid-19 cases with a positivity rate of 2.5%. A first lockdown was imposed in the capital on April 19, which was extended many times; the last time, it was extended on May 16.

Kejriwal said, “Delhi was the first to impose lockdown across the country during the second wave of the virus. But within a month, the situation seems to be stabilizing due to the discipline shown by the residents of the national capital.”

He also stated that “The positivity rate has decreased from the all-time high of 36% to 2.5%.In light of this, everybody believes that the lockdown should be extended by a week. There is a possibility that the third wave will not hit if everyone is vaccinated. We are planning to vaccinate everyone as soon as possible. I am in talks with domestic and foreign companies regarding vaccines. We are ready to spend from our budget.”
