It’s been over three months since the coronavirus pandemic started wreaking havoc across the world. The city of Wuhan in China is where it originated and it hasn’t slowed down yet. India have been one of the countries, which has been deeply affected. Thus far, over 2,57,000 COVID-19 cases have been identified with over 7,135 people losing their precious lives.

Even as the other countries have managed to flatten the curve to a large extent, the concerns remain in India. In the meantime, Delhi is all set to witness the opening of restaurants, malls and places of worship from Monday, June 8. Among the infected states in India, the national capital is third on the list. The ungodly virus has taken the lives of 761 with 27,654 cases.  

Aakash Chopra, the former Indian cricketer, who also belongs to Delhi, kept his fingers crossed regarding the upcoming  developments in the city. He took to Twitter and wrote, “Malls, restaurants, places of worship…all open for Delhi from tomorrow. Good luck, Delhi #COVIDー19,”

Here is Aakash Chopra’s tweet

Aakash Chopra has been keeping a close eye on what’s happening in the country. Recently, he lashed out at the people, who gathered at the Marine Drive in the morning on Sunday, June 7. He also expressed agony that people are not following the basic guideline of social distancing.

“The scenes at Marine Drive-Band Stand last few days are worrying. Cops are making frequent trips…informing citizens to follow the advisory…but our people are paying no heed. Back in hordes every evening. Social-distancing?? What’s that? #COVIDIDIOT,” his tweet read.

In Delhi, the COVID-19 patients have also shown displeasure over the hospitals for over-charging them. The Delhi government has issued an order to all the hospitals, who are treating coronavirus patients, to provide their schedule of charges to the Directorate General of Health Services.

On Saturday, May 6, Delhi recorded its highest number of COVID-19 cases (1,513). According to a report by the Death Audit Committee, the death numbers are the fatalities where the ungodly virus is the primary cause of death. In the world, India is fifth on the list with the United States, Brazil, Russia and United Kingdom above them.
