Today the whole world is going through a very tough situation of pandemic which is creating a havoc in the lives of people and resulting in a great economic downturn. Keeping the situation in mind and after being suggested for having restrictions on the pilgrims of “Kumbh Mela” Mr. Kejriwal after his meeting with the LG Anil Baija said, “We had no other option left. In these 6 days, we will ramp up Delhi’s medical infrastructure,” As Delhi has reported over 23,000 Corona cases in last 24 hours.
The lockdown will be imposed from 10 pm today till 5 am on April 26, here is the guidelines for the things that will be allowed and that willn’t be:
- All essential and medical services will continue during the lockdown in the city-state.
- The movement of people for marriage gatherings will be up to 50 people and for funeral gathering of up to 20 people will be allowed.
- Media will be exempted to move during the curfew on the production of a valid ID card.
- There will be no restrictions on inter-state and intra-state movement/transportation of essential goods.

Mr. Kejriwal also laid a stress over the point that the hospitals are facing shortage of oxygen and ICU beds and these 6 days will be the period when the government will try their best to fill up this huge need.
The CM has also taken care of the migrant workers and have requested them not to leave Delhi and have showed a hopeful nature that this lockdown will be for short time only. It must be a point to remark that the state of Delhi is currently facing the 4th wave of Coronavirus infection and Delhi is the worst-hit city, confirming more cases daily than Mumbai in recent days hence people really do need to understand that these measures are being taken into consideration for only their own safety.
