No lockdown in Delhi if people follow COVID protocols: Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi/IBNS: As the national capital struggles to stem the surge in cases, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said there will be no lockdown if people follow protocol like wearing face masks in public and maintaining social distance.

"No need to panic... be responsible. We don't want to enforce a lockdown right now... we want to keep curbs as limited as possible, so the common man is not affected. Tomorrow there is a DDMA (Delhi Disaster Management Agency) meeting, and we will review the situation again," Kejriwal said.

The Chief Minister urged people to get double vaccinated as soon as possible.

He also announced that he had recovered from the Covid infection that he picked up while campaigning for next month's Uttarakhand election.

"I am back at your service after recovering from Corona," he said, adding that he had self-isolated at home after having a two-day fever.

Earlier this week, the Delhi government announced 'weekend curfew' with effect from Friday 10 pm till Monday 5 am, to contain the spread of the virus.

During the weekend curfew, people will not be allowed to step out without any valid reason.
