This graded response system will be decided on the infection rate of the corona, number of active corona patients and number of patients in hospitals. Under this, restrictions will be imposed at the places where the infection spreads in Delhi.
This alert will be effective if the infection rate in the capital Delhi remains more than 0.5 percent for two consecutive days or 1,500 new cases of corona come for a week or 500 oxygen beds in hospitals are filled for an average of a week. At the same time, in the event of less number of cases, shops with non-essential goods and services in the markets and goods will be allowed to open according to the odd-even formula from 10 am to 8 pm. In addition, a weekly market will be allowed at half the capacity of vendors in all the three municipal corporation areas of Delhi.
