On Thursday, Delhi government informed the high court that it is actively considering the option of imposing night curfews or lockdown but hasn’t made any decision yet. Over the las few days there has been spike in the number of COVID-19 cases in the city.
The advocates representing the Kejriwal-led government told the court that the decision would depend on the situation of the pandemic in the national capital.
The response comes after a division bench of the Delhi High Court presided by Justices Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad enquired from the government whether it was planning to impose night curfews or weekend curfews like certain other cities had done due to the rise in COVID-19 cases.
The number of daily COVID-19 cases has mostly remained over 6,000 in Delhi over the last week. According the Delhi health department report, on 25 November, the city had 38,287 active Covid-19 cases.
