On November 18, the Arvind Kejriwal-led government told the Delhi High Court that a personal vehicle on a public road can not be said to be a private zone - rather, it is a public space. However, the condition has been improved in the state, Kejriwal said.

While the Covid-19 situation in the country seems to improve with fewer cases each day, the national capital continues to report the high daily numbers, with daily deaths hovering just below the 100-mark. "The positivity rate has come down to 10% from 15%", Kejriwal added.

Meanwhile, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain announced that government rates would apply to the normal, non-ICU beds reserved in private hospitals by the Delhi government for COVID-19 patients. Along with this, a fine of Rs 2000 will also be paid for not wearing masks and eating paan, gutkha etc.in public places.

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Saturday said that it would increase COVID-19 RT-PCR testing capacity, and house-to-house survey has begun in Delhi amidst a spike in COVID-19 cases. Six districts in Delhi have more more than 400 COVID-19 containment zones - 743 (southwest), 705 (south), 587 (west), 543 (southeast), 490 (central Delhi) and 445 (northwest), according to the official data. The survey will cover over 57 lakh people in containment zones, dense areas and identified clusters of virus transmission, officials said.

The chief minister said that it was likely that the distribution plan of the vaccination will be prepared by the central government, but he would prefer "priority-based" vaccination which is "technical rather than political in nature". Our corona warriors should be the first to get the vaccine. Second priority should be given to those who are vulnerable groups like senior citizens and then those who have comorbidities. If we make such categories, it will be technical in nature rather than political In nature.

Delhi has reported over 5 lakh coronavirus cases since outbreak.

To meet the fresh wave of cases, a total of 500 isolation beds at the Chhatarpur Covid care centre will have oxygen facility by the weekend. COVID-19 claimed more than 8,000 lives in the national capital.
