Omicron | Delhi govt's 2 out of 3 requests rejected by LG: reports

On January 20, Delhi reported 12,306 new infections, lower than the 13,785 count seen a day earlier.

Delhi government's attempt to ease restrictions in the national capital has reportedly been blocked by the Lieutenant Governor. Delhi will continue to observe weekend curfew and other curbs.

LG Anil Baijal said that the question of lifting the weekend curfew would be considered once the Covid situation improves further, as per sources quoted in an NDTV report. He also rejected the AAP government's plea to withdraw the odd-even rule of opening shops in markets.
