“We have deployed adequate numbers of personnel in all district across the national capital. We also urge people who will come out of their homes to follow Covid-appropriate behaviour and DDMA guidelines,” Biswal said.

Senior officers from different districts said they will ask people to strictly follow Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) guidelines, wear mask and not gather at public places.

“Before the coronavirus pandemic, we used to go to the temples. Since the Covid outbreak, we have been worshipping at our home. We, especially our parents, do not go outside in crowded areas. The situation is not good and in these tough times, staying at home is the safest option,” Sharma said.
