Officials said on Wednesday that the situation was completely under control. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is closely monitoring the infection situation and is in constant touch with top officials to ensure that the infection remains under control and all preparations are in place to deal with any situation.
The Delhi government has made it mandatory for people to wear masks. Those violating this rule will be fined Rs 500.
