NEW DELHI: There will be no reimposition of lockdown in Delhi, clarified health minister Satyendar Jain on Monday while adding that the third wave of Covid-19 has passed its peak in the national capital.

“There will be no reimposition of lockdown in Delhi. I don’t think it will be an effective step now, wearing of masks by everyone will be more beneficial. The third wave of Covid-19 has passed its peak in Delhi,” said Jain.

“Yesterday, 3,235 cases were reported, 7,606 people recovered and 95 died. There is a lack of ICU beds. Yesterday, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had a meeting with the home minister. The chief minister has again appealed to him to increase the ICU beds in central hospitals in Delhi. The Home Minister has assured to increase 750 beds,” he added.

The health minister further said that stern action will be taken against people who do not wear masks and do not follow social distancing norms in the national capital.

“Fine worth Rs 45 crore has been imposed on such defaulters in the past few days,” he added.
