The Delhi government has extended the COVID-19-related restrictions till June 7, stated an official order issued on May 29. The norms have been partially relaxed for construction and manufacturing sectors.

"Operations of manufacturing/production units within closed premises in approved industrial areas and construction activities within their worksites shall be allowed outside the containment zones during the curfew period," the order issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) stated.

The lockdown in the national capital was earlier scheduled to end on May 31. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had stated that the restrictions would be "gradually lifted" as the number of COVID-19 cases have begun to sharply dip.

The test positivity rate in the national capital hovers below 1.5 percent - drastically lower than around 25 percent positivity being reported when the lockdown came into effect on April 19.
