The Covid-19 lockdown in Delhi – due to end 5 am Monday – has been extended by a week, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted Saturday evening, reports ndtv.
The national capital has been under lockdown since April 19, as the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) scrambles to contain a fresh wave of infections and a positivity rate that remains over 30 per cent.
“Lockdown in Delhi is being extended by one week,” Mr Kejriwal tweeted.
This is the second extension of the lockdown in the national capital.
Last Sunday, while announcing the first, the Chief Minister said: “Coronavirus still continues to wreak havoc in the city. Public opinion is lockdown should increase. So it is being extended for one week.”
