The Delhi government issued further restrictions today as part of the city’s “yellow alert” to fight the fast-spreading Omicron variant of COVID-19. Schools, colleges, and other educational institutions in Delhi will remain closed until further notice, according to the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA).
Due to the city’s air pollution, Delhi’s schools and institutions were ordered to close earlier this month. Only two weeks ago, they reopened for physical classes.
All schools, colleges, educational institutions, training institutions, coaching classes, and libraries will now be closed as a result of the new DDMA order.
Following the largest single-day surge in infections in six months in Delhi, further restrictions have been imposed. 331 new cases were reported in the city yesterday.
In just two weeks, Delhi’s percentage of Omicron cases has risen from 2% to 25-30%.
