New Delhi: The Delhi government would not allow any more relaxation in the ongoing lockdown than those permitted by the Union home ministry, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Sunday and stressed on bringing down the number of COVID-19 infections in the national capital.

Addressing an online media briefing, the chief minister said his government was implementing the Centre’s guidelines on opening of neighbourhood and standalone shops during the lockdown till May 3.

No markets and malls will be allowed to open in the national capital and all shops in COVID-19 containment zones will remain shut, he said.

“The government will maintain status quo and will not relax lockdown restrictions till May 3, except those permitted by the Union home ministry,” he said.

“We are going through difficult times. We will have to continue our efforts to reduce the number of COVID-19 infections in Delhi,” he said.

The chief minister said the novel coronavirus doesn’t discriminate between any religion. “We need to work together. Plasma of Muslim can be used to treat Hindu patient and vice versa,” he added.

The total number of coronavirus cases in Delhi stood at 2,625 on Saturday, with 111 new cases and one death being reported in a day, according to Delhi government authorities.

The death toll from COVID-19 is now 54.

  1. This is absurd. The author or whoever has given the title of the article is a fanatic . insensitive to anybody’s feelings, not concerned with religion of anybody and is playing attention game ;-). It’s so cheap act of yours, is not appreciated at all.

    Author- have some dignity, self respect for yourself.

  2. Dimag me Kya Bhara hai? Har jagah Hindu Muslim.
    Vote bank se Bahar aao. Fight with corona- Don’t play politics at this moment.

  3. People who were saying that virus has no religion are saying that plasma has religion. They are not doing any favor. First so much effort was spent to trace them.. then their tantrums in quarantine centres. Then that were given free treatment. They are obliged to donate plasma. Even other are doing it. Why highlighting the religion of this lot. Stop this appeasement of the single source community.

  4. See the headline of this article. How cleverly you guys hide complete statement and just mention it in the body. Shameful…

  5. How mean he is,won’t spare any opportunity to use hindu muslim card. Let’s ask his maulana “sad” about plasma of kafir for momin.
