You were shaken out of slumber, you turned turtle after we asked questions: HC to Delhi govt on COVID management

New Delhi, November 19

The Delhi High Court on Thursday came down heavily on the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government over it’s the management of the coronavirus pandemic.

The court also questioned the timing of the AAP government’s order restricting the number of people at weddings.

“Why wait till now to reduce the number of attendees at weddings,” the court said.

The court said: “Why did you wait for 18 days to restrict the number of attendees at weddings, how many died of COVID-19 during this period.”

“You were shaken out of slumber, you turned turtle after we asked questions,” said the court.

The court noted that the quantum of fine for not wearing masks and not maintaining social distancing does not appear to be a deterrent.

On Wednesday, Delhi recorded 7,486 fresh COVID-19 cases, taking the infection tally in the national capital to over 5 lakh, even as 131 new fatalities, the highest single-day death count till date, pushed the toll to 7,943, authorities said. Reuters/PTI
