The Arvind Kejriwal-led government will reportedly send a fresh proposal to the Centre seeking its permission to impose lockdown across market areas to control the rising coronavirus cases. 

“Will send a proposal to the central government for permission to close markets if crowds don’t decrease as the shopping areas have potential of becoming Covid-19 hotspots,” the chief minister said on Tuesday. 

Notably, the city has been witnessing a rise in the number of new COVID-19 cases from the last few days.

The national capital had recorded its highest single-day spike of 8,593 COVID-19 cases on Wednesday. On Thursday, 104 fatalities, the highest in a day in over five months, were recorded.
