Delhi CM Friday said that the lockdown in the national capital will end on May 31. And the UT will subsequently go through the unlock process.

Now that the fresh COVID-19 cases in Delhi have dropped, the city will go through the unlocking process. The positivity rate has also reduced to 1.5 per cent.

Sooner the Delhi government will allow construction activities and factories to reopen from May 31, Kejriwal said.

The decision of gradual unlocking was taken at a crucial meeting of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA).

“After facing so many problems, we have gained control over the 2nd wave somehow. This doesn’t mean the fight has ended. The situation is under control for now. In the last 24 hours, the positivity rate stood at around 1.5 percent,” the chief minister said.

The deaths reported on Thursday were 117 which is the lowest since April 15.
