The Delhi government has prohibited Christmas and New Year parties due to an increase in Omicron infections. According to the DDMA directive, there has been a steady increase in Covid in Delhi.
The Delhi government has prohibited public gatherings around Christmas and New Year due to an increase in Covid cases. The government said that the sickness will be controlled by the district judges and the district Disaster Management Authority.
The DDMA said in the order that “all district judges should perform a thorough study of the whole region lying under their jurisdiction and identify those pockets, marketplaces, and crowded areas that have the potential to become superspreaders of coronavirus and its Omicron version.”
It added that all DMs and DCPs must deploy a sufficient number of enforcement teams on the ground to maintain a high level of vigilance in public spaces, enforcing strict adherence to Covid-appropriate behavior in order to prevent an increase in Covid-19 cases.
All social, political, athletic, entertainment, cultural, and religious festival-related gatherings and assemblages are outlawed across the NCT of Delhi, according to the directive. All restaurants and bars are permitted to seat up to 50% of their patrons.
The number of Omicron cases in India has grown to 213, according to statistics released by the Union Health Ministry on Wednesday. Maharashtra came in first with 65 instances, followed by Delhi with 57. So far, 90 people have been released after regaining their health.
The development of Omicron in India has alarmed the government, causing it to issue a warning to states. Meanwhile, to combat the development of Omicron in India, most governments, including Delhi, Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Kerala, have tightened Covid regulations.
The majority of Omicron patients identified up to Monday had travelled to Dubai. Nineteen of the 22 patients had a history of overseas travel.
“Omicron is more transmissible than Delta by at least three times.” As a result, at the local and district level, even more foresight, data analysis, dynamic decision making, and stringent and fast containment measures are essential,” health secretary Rajesh Bhushan said in a letter to states on Tuesday.
