Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on Saturday, announced measures for unlocking the city, which has been under COVID-19 induced lockdown, according to sources.

With a dip seen in active COVID-19 cases, Delhi had begun the unlocking process from May 31 with factories and the construction sector to resume operations. The national capital has been under lockdown since April 19 in view of the massive surge in coronavirus cases in the second wave of the pandemic. 

Arvind Kejriwal announced today that the Delhi Metro too will run at 50% seating capacity. Private offices can also be opened with 50 percent manpower. "As and when the situation keeps improving, more relaxations will be announced. This is what is being done currently," said Kejriwal.

These are some other relaxations announced by the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government. 

Malls and shopping centres will be open on an odd-even basis. 

Essential shops and chemists can open on all days. The odd-even rule does not apply to them.

Private offices can open at a limit of 50%. The government urged people to work from home as much as they can.

Delhi Metro will run at 50% capacity. 

Currently, there is a lockdown in Delhi till 5:00 am on Monday, June 7. Meanwhile, Delhi recorded 523 fresh COVID-19 cases and 50 deaths on Friday, said the health bulletin of the union territory. However, the daily number was a bit higher than the day before when the national capital reported 487 COVID cases. The number of active cases in Delhi stands at 8,060.
