New Delhi: A day after the country reported over 1 lakh cases in a single day, Delhi today imposed a night curfew till April 30 to control a steep rise in Covid-19 infections.
In an order passed by the Delhi government, it said, the “sudden increase in Covid-19 cases” and “high positivity rate” meant a night curfew was needed.
The officials said that those going for vaccinations and the movement of essential services will be allowed with e-passes during night curfew hours.
Private doctors, nurses, other medical staff and journalists will be allowed on the streets with ID cards. Exceptions will also be made for pregnant women and those needing treatment.
Those travelling to or from the airport, train and bus stations will be allowed on the road if they produce their tickets.
