The nation’s capital city is experiencing an unprecedented increase in COVID-19 cases.
This COVID-19 outbreak affects almost everybody, especially those in the frontline, such as
Police and health workers.
Delhi Police officials on Monday (January 10, 2022) morning said that Delhi Police officials

The strength of the Delhi Police is over 80,000.
In the past, Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana issued the Standard Operating
Procedure (SOP) for stopping the spread of coronavirus among police officers.
According to the SOP, all police officers must wear face masks, maintain social distance,
and practice good hand hygiene when performing their job.
All police personnel and family members who haven’t been vaccinated might be motivated
to finish the vaccination procedure.
In the meantime, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) is scheduled to meet
on the 15th of April to discuss additional restrictions, such as ‘total curfew’ in the Graded
