Delhi govt may shut down some markets as COVID-19 cases surge, says CM Arvind Kejriwal



NEW DELHI: Amid reports of a third wave in the national capital, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday (November 17) made a major announcement when he said that his government is mulling to shut down several crowded markets in the city-state in wake of the current spurt in the coronavirus cases and has sent a proposal to the Centre in this regard.

The Chief Minister, who addressed a media briefing on Tuesday, thanked the government in Centre for providing extra beds for COVID-19 patients in Delhi. 

"Since cases are rising in Delhi, we are sending a general proposal to the central government that if required, Delhi government can implement shutting down those markets for few days, where norms are not being followed and they are becoming a local COVID-19 hotspot", CM Kejriwal said as quoted by news agency ANI. 

"Delhi government, Centre and all agencies have been making 'double efforts' to control the COVID-19 situation in Delhi," he added.
