New Delhi: Authorities in Delhi North East have closed another market in a span of almost a week for violating the COVID-19 norms. Officials ordered the closure of Kali Ghat Market on West Karawal Nagar Road in North East Delhi. According to officials, the market will remain closed from 10 am on Friday.

The authorities took action after shopkeepers, vendors and the general public did not follow the COVID-19-appropriate behaviour.

Shops, establishments and offices in the market were asked to display signboards encouraging people to wear masks, follow social distancing and use sanitisers. Also asked to open shops on the basis of odd-even.

On January 6, authorities in the Northeast district of the national capital closed down Sonia Vihar 2 Pushta Market and Mukund Vihar Market in Karawal Nagar, as they too did not follow the COVID-19 safety protocols.

The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) has ordered all shop owners to strictly adhere to the COVID-safety norms amid the rising number of COVID cases in the city, which are driven by the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

The Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Khajuri Khas has been directed to ensure strict compliance of this order, while the Market Welfare Association has been directed to extend its full cooperation.

Delhi recorded 27,561 fresh Covid cases, the highest increase for the second day since the start of the pandemic and 40 deaths on Wednesday, while the positivity rate rose to 26.22%.
