DDMA to meet again to discuss further restrictions


National capital Delhi is under a weekend curfew, which started on Friday evening, due to a huge spike in the number of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases. It is among the several curbs announced by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) after recent meeting. And now, another DDMA meeting is expected to take place on Monday to discuss further restrictions, including 'total curfew', under the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP).

The agenda of the meeting include review of the Covid-19 situation and preparation in the wake of rising Omicron cases in Delhi, discussion on implementation of GRAP (Level 4 Red), and review of vaccination programme, a notice listing the official agenda of the meeting said.

According to GRAP, Red Alert is the topmost level of restrictions, which includes total curfew, closure of all non-essential shops, Metro trains, government offices, except those dealing with essential services.

The Red Alert is sounded under GRAP when Covid-19 positivity goes beyond five per cent and stays above it for two consecutive days.
