Both the government and the traders are worried about the increasing cases of Kovid-19 and the new variant Omicron in Delhi. In this regard, the Chamber of Trade and Industry (CTI) has written a letter to the disaster management team. A meeting of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) is to be held on Monday. The infection rate in the capital has reached almost 20 percent. In view of the current situation and situation of Corona in the meeting, other restrictions can also be decided. At present, the restrictions of ‘Yellow’ alert are in force under the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAPE).
The Chamber of Trade and Industry (CTI), an organization of traders in Delhi, has written a letter to DDMA demanding that no lockdown or orange alert should be imposed in Delhi yet. CTI Chairman Brijesh Goyal said that the way the Kovid infection rate is increasing in Delhi, traders are afraid of lockdown or orange alert. The DDMA meeting should not be decided on the basis of transition only.
He said that while the grape restrictions were made in view of the dangerous condition of the delta, Omicron is not that dangerous. There is also a need to look into the filling of beds in hospitals and the symptoms of the disease. Many infected patients are recovering in home isolation.
Brijesh Goyal said that according to the Corona App of the Delhi Government, out of a total of 14106 Kovid beds in the hospitals of the capital, 12520 beds are vacant. Obviously, the cases of corona have increased right now, but they are not fatal. The CTI has demanded with the facts that for now only the ‘Yellow’ alert should be continued. The CTI said that if the Orange Alert is sounded, 90% of the things including markets, factories will be closed in Delhi.
The CTI chairman said that if additional strictness is done on the markets, there will be financial loss to the businessmen and employees. At the same time, the government will also have to bear the loss of revenue. If the lockdown is imposed, then the labor will also migrate. Once the laborers return home, it is difficult for them to come back. DDMA should take a decision only after discussing all the subjects.
