As per official data, 10,665 and 5,481 cases were reported on Wednesday and Tuesday with positivity rates of 11.88 per cent and 8.37 per cent respectively.

Official sources said, “Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) meeting has been scheduled in the afternoon on Monday in view of rising COVID-19 cases. Further restrictions may be decided as the cases are rising rapidly.” ,” said official sources.

The agenda of the meeting includes review of the COVID-19 situation and preparedness in the wake of rising omicron cases in Delhi, discussion on implementation of GRAP (Level 4 Raid) and review of immunization programme.

“Discussions on implementation of Graded Response Action Plan (Level 4 Red Alert) as COVID positivity have crossed 15.34 per cent,” the notice listing agenda of the meeting said.

Under the four-stage Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) approved by the Red Alert DDMA, total curfew, closure of all non-essential shops, metro trains, government offices, barring essential services, is the highest level of restrictions. ,

Under GRAP, a red alert is issued when the positivity of COVID crosses 5 per cent and persists for two consecutive days.
