DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has announced that no standing passengers to be allowed inside the train until further notice. A day after, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that the metro would run 100% sitting capacity. DMRC tweeted this morning, “in light of the current instructions given by DDMA, Delhi Metro operating at 100% seating capacity, and no standing passengers would be permitted until further notice.”

The Delhi government has decided to run metros and buses at total capacity to reduce crowding at stations. On the other hand, Commuters must wear masks and maintain adequate social distance while travelling. In addition, the Delhi government issued a weekend curfew and work-from-home policy for its offices earlier on Tuesday, after the city recorded 5,481 new COVID-19 cases, the highest number since May 16, with an 8.37 per cent positive rate and three fatalities.

However, the national capital is not under lockdown, according to Health Minister Satyendar Jain’. The municipal administration also urged all private hospitals and nursing homes with 50 beds or more to set aside at least 40% of their total bed capacity for coronavirus patients, citing the surge in positive rates.

All essential services are permitted in the national capital during the weekend curfew, which will begin at 10 p.m. on Friday and last until 5 a.m. on Monday, to combat a rise in COVID-19 caused by Omicron. On Tuesday, the city registered 382 omicron cases, up from 351 the day before. Along with the weekend curfew, a night curfew will be enforced during the week.
