Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday announced that all grocery stores and those selling essential items will remain open 24/7 during the 21-day coronavirus lockdown. Amid reports of ecommerce sites suspending their services over harassment by the police, Kejriwal said that 'I have requested the cops to allow anyone who is seen delivering essential commodities despite not having a pass or ID.' The Chief Minister also said that the SHOs and DMs must ensure that shops of essential services and factories are working in their respective areas. Kejriwal once again urged people to stay home. 'Do not let others pay for your actions,' the Chief Minister said. Amid reports of a doctor testing positive for coronavirus, Kejriwal said that all mohalla clinics will continue to treat people in the national capital. (Coronavirus Outbreak Live Updates)
