The nationwide capital which is already going by the third wave of coronavirus, noticed a number of folks queuing up outdoors the station that’s notoriously overcrowded as it’s the closest metro cease that connects with well-known areas like Connaught Place, Jantar Mantar and Janpath.
The Delhi Metro resumed its full-fledged operations from September after virtually six months of COVID-19 halt and the lengthy queues had been because of the new guidelines that want each passenger to bear thermal screening and hand sanitisation on the entry level of stations.
In response to the Union Well being Ministry, there are 40,258 lively instances within the nationwide capital.
