According to officials, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) on Tuesday revoked an earlier directive ordering the deployment of teachers to the Indira Gandhi International Airport to enforce covid procedures.
The airport duty is waived for teachers and other teaching staff who were scheduled to deploy from December 31 through January 15, as per the revised directive. “Further, in case required, civil defence volunteers from district west may be deputed on call out duty basis,” the order issued by the district magistrate (west) stated.
Following complaints from several teachers, the DDMA withdrew the earlier decision on deployment. On behalf of the DDMA, the district magistrate (West) issued it. A number of Delhi government school teachers were supposed to be stationed at the IGI Airport from December 31 to January 15 to make sure individuals behaved in a covid-appropriate manner, according to the now-retracted directive.
In light of an increase in covid instances in certain nations, the authorities in Delhi on Monday started physically inspecting all government hospitals in the city to determine their readiness to handle any situation.
Although the novel Omicron sub-variant BF.7 of the coronavirus, which is responsible for the rise in cases in several nations, has not been found in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal stated last week that his government is completely prepared to handle any situation.
