NEW DELHI: The Delhi government on Thursday sent its third proposal to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, seeking his permission to allow the reopening of hotels, gyms and weekly markets in the Capital, through Revenue Minister Kailash Gahlot, who implored the ex-facto Chairperson of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) to reconsider his decision in light of the improving COVID-19 situation in the city.

While the city on Thursday recorded 1,299 fresh cases, slightly higher than in the past few days, it also dramatically increased testing compared to numbers from the last few days. Delhi had conducted a total of 20,436 tests, of which 5,737 were RT-PCR tests and 14,699 were rapid antigen tests. The Delhi government said the city added 15 deaths to the toll here, taking total COVID-19 fatalities to 4,059.
